Norfolk, UK - No surprise that York stone flagstones topped the reclaimed building materials at the architectural salvage sale on Saturday last at the Diss Auction Rooms of T W Gaze. York flags made 100 to 110 (inc premium) per square yard, and grey 'cottage' flagstones - which looked very much like Bristol or Welsh Pennant - made around 60 per square yard.

A 52ins grit millstone 8ins deep from Tuxford Mill in Nottinghamshire fetched 652, wide York stone tabling made around 8/ft run, twice weathered 14ins Portland coping made 5.60/ft run, 9ins sq unglazed orange floor tiles made 3.56p, diamond stable pavers made 70p, hogsback ridge made 1.80 ea, pantiles made 16p-72p ea, Staffordshire blue plain pavers made 52p ea, 18 by 10 roof slates made 34p ea.

Top lot at the sale was a gypsy caravan which sold for 5,625 and a carved stone urn, from the Houses of Parliament, by repute, made 1012.
