Hello, I’m Phil, welcome to


This website is intended as a showcase for my Letter-Cutting and Stone-Carving. Please come along in and enjoy viewing my work.


My work as ‘WORDS IN STONE’ predominantly centres around carving house names, memorials and other types of inscription by hand and made to order, using local limestone whenever possible (or slate if preferred). It’s very much a bespoke service that I offer. (Time permitting I also carve free-style ‘speculative’ pieces as well; these can be either sculptural or word-based art-works.) Whatever it is, each piece is always carved by hand with pride (let alone patience!). So I hope you’ll enjoy a good browse around the site and gain a clear overview of the kind of work I am able to undertake. Should you then decide to place an order with me, here’s what to do:


Use the contact page, phone, text or email to tell me your requirements.

I will need to know the following:

The width & height of the proposed site and/or the proposed stone; 

What is to be inscribed on the stone, and any lettering/font style preferences;

Whether in-painting may be required;   The type of stone you may prefer;

Free-standing or wall-mounted?;   Delivery and/or installation required? 

Once I have this information, plus your contact details, I would submit an estimate for the work. If you are happy with the estimate, I would confirm a quote and, if you are happy with that,  I would commence work (upon receipt of a 33% non-returnable deposit).
