Block pave drive

I am doing my drive later this year and have just dug out the drive for its new base etc.

I am wanting to do block paving, but ideally use a sandstone product.

Marshalls do a beautiful "Magnasett" product, but it cost £120 sqm approx. I think this is laid on sharp sand like basic block paving and this is how i would prefer to do the drive.

However a local company also sell a sandstone block product and it looks very similar to marshalls. Their price as of last autumn was £25 sqm. This is the product:

However this needs to be laid on a sand and cement screed.

I have not done this type of paving before. Any ideas on how you lay these blocks and how do you point them up ?

It's £46.80/mtr delivered to Rochdale (based on 70mtrs)
Thats on the website ?

Ive been over to see the guy and his price is much lower when you speak to him.

Yes, I filled in the box on the link you posted.

Let me know if you get them, I'm after something similar, the 50mm ones, I bet they can go down sharp sand.
That’s what I said to him but he said lay it on a screed of mortar.

The marshalls product is very similar to this and you can lay that on sand no problem.

I will do some more checking
