Antique French Slate Vine Stakes 80-100cm

Reclaimed slate stakes and slabs. These hand-hewn stone posts and slabs were used in France’s Loire region around Angers (where they were mined) for simple fence posts, steps and even vine support stakes. Re-use these truly reclaimed materials for various landscape and garden features such as rustic edging along pathways.

They come in different sizes, depending on what they’d been used for, so where recommend visiting our yard to choose the slates you require depending on your project. The average width of each stake is 8-10cm. If you require delivery, please be aware that we will not be able to custom pick specific stakes and you will receive those towards the top of the pallet.

For example see the photos of the sea-side property garden boundary “fencing”, where they perfectly match the rustic schist roofing of the old cliff-top cottage.
