Durability Guaranteed - Pulhamite Rockwork - Its conservation and repair, published by Historic England in 2008, defines pulhamite as: ‘A term used for at least two different materials manufactured by the Pulhams, one a render material (described by the Pulhams as a ‘cement’) made from eminently hydraulic lime (or in some cases a natural cement) and aggregate and used from the late 1830s until at least the 1870s in rockwork features; and the other a stone-coloured terracotta material used from the 1840s into the 20th century for pre-cast garden and architectural ornaments.'
