What are Staddlestones?

Staddlestones are traditional post bases for oak and timber buildings and garages.

Originally installed as foundational supports in granaries and stables, they were used to lift wooden buildings above ground level to protect them from vermin and water damage.

Staddlestones are thought to date back to the 17th century and were made in varying styles in different UK regions.

Staddlestones have a unique shape. They are often mistaken for mushroom garden ornaments, which is something they are now commonly used as, and look charming placed among borders or between trees. They also make pleasing alternatives to bollards for driveways.

Padstones are much smaller and have a more functional appearance, as a squared stone base for wooden posts.

Staddlestones and padstones are still often used in wooden building design and finish off timber garages or stables beautifully.
