Further information

MOT Type 1 limestone is used commonly as a sub-base for paths, drives, patios, and many other construction jobs.  MOT Type 1 is used to provide long term stability and support so the wearing coat on the surface will not buckle or deform. MOT Type 1 is very angular in shape and so after compaction the particles will lock and key to each other.  MOT Type 1 is very favoured because after compaction a very even surface can often be achieved.

The main uses of MOT Type 1 are:

  • As a subbase for many applications including driveways, paths and garden buildings.
  • As a filling product in construction
