Paving bricks are always a hard brick in order to cope with wear and weather and tend to be thinner than a standard walling brick. What we call a Victorian Paviour (a generalization) tends to be a mix of reds and oranges with some dark overtones, but there are, of course, many variations.
We also keep in stock a reproduction paviour with a smooth but slightly pitted surface which will weather down beautifully along with a really rustic reproduction paver.
Stable bricks (also called Crossovers) are normally ‘Staffordshire blue’ (blue/purple/almost black) in colour with a surface that is commonly divided into two, four or eight squares, although occasionally a diamond pattern. Some Red Kiln, Wirecut and Engineering bricks can be used for paving.
