McCarthy & Stone


A large retirement village at Parkland Place in Bedfordshire required slate appearance roofs.

Russell Roof Tiles was chosen by McCarthy & Stone to provide the tiles thanks to its cost-effective yet sustainable roofing solutions. Its concrete tiles replicate the appearance of natural looking roof tiles with the benefits of offering greater strength while Russell Roof Tiles’ modern manufacturing methods deliver a technically consistent and quality product for the developer.


Moray is part of Russell Roof Tiles’ Natural Range – an expanding selection of thinner leading edge interlocking concrete tiles that has the natural appearance of stone, clay or slate.

The tile provides a riven finish which when laid gives the appearance of stone tiles while also providing the benefits of a concrete tile, including consistency and longevity, minimising the life time costs of the roof once installed.

When completed, Parkland Place comprised 46 spacious one and two-bedroom apartments and three two-bedroom cottages and is designed to make living as easy as possible for its residents.
