Quarry Visits

Stamford Stone Quarry Visits

24 September 2014 was a very important day for us

It was the first time we welcomed visitors to our quarry to see first-hand why our stone has become such a popular choice for architects, builders and contractors.

27 people joined our inaugural tour which was so successful that we’re going to make it a regular fixture.

Below is a typical itinerary for a Quarry Visit – you can look forward to a very interesting few hours, as our guest, seeing exactly how a quarry operates. Some of the highlights include:

  • Witnessing how raw block from the quarries is transformed into masonry and walling stone used in restoration projects such as the Palace of Westminster.
  • Watching how the raw blocks are split by hand using a sledgehammer – there’s no obligation, but one brave visitor had a go himself during our inaugural tour!
  • Enjoying a short coach trip from Clipsham Medwells Quarry to Swaddywell Quarry, via historic Stamford, renowned for its beautiful stone.
  • Refreshments in our showroom
  • A visit to our limestone flooring tile production line
  • Insight into our quality control processes – our customers only get the best!
  • Live demonstration of how to hand carve a fireplace

Interested in being part of our next event? It’s a fantastic opportunity to visit a working quarry and find out more about the benefits of building sustainably in natural stone.
