The future

Mountsorrel Quarry






Our resource of pink granite continues to be in high demand from businesses in the construction industry.

Our strategic position at the centre of the UK means we can supply projects up and down the country with ease. We are close to the major highways network, meaning we can distribute resources nationwide by road, and our rail freight depot at Barrow-upon-Soar allows us to transport stone sustainably and efficiently by rail.

Crucially, we are able to supply materials to major projects in London and the southern regions which have no hard rock reserves of their own.

As demand increases, it is important that we look ahead to the future of the quarry.

We are currently undertaking a programme of ground investigation works to examine the feasibility of future options currently under consideration for the quarry.

The surveys we are carrying out will help us to understand the land in and around the quarry. Once the work is completed, we will be in a better position to make informed strategic decisions about its future.

We are at the very early stages of exploring the quarry’s future plans which we will share with our neighbouring communities as they begin to take shape.
