English: Collyweston slate — a characteristic 'slate' roof of older buildings in parts of England.
- Colleyweston slate is not a true slate, but a laminar-bedded limestone. The quarries are based in the village of Collyweston, to the west of Stamford, in Lincolnshire; and Duddington.
- Traditionally it was mined in bars, and de-laminated by natural frost. More industrial techniques were used from the 19th-century onwards.
- The stone shingles are found on historic buildings in Rutland, South Lincolnshire, Eastern Northamptonshire, and what was once the Soke of Peterborough.
