Our stone is used extensively for sculptures, indoor and outdoor and weathers well, being the hardest wearing limestone available.  It is also used for landscaping and has been in award winning Chelsea Flower Show gardens.

Clipsham Quarry has been in existence since it was discovered by the Romans.   It is used in Cathedrals and Churches around the UK and examples can be seen in The Palace of Westminster, Windsor Castle, the award winning Bury St. Edmunds Cathedral as well as most of the Oxford Colleges.  We are currently producing approximately 2000 tonnes per year.

We welcome visitors to the quarry and are happy to show groups of architects, project managers and masons around.  Please ring us and let us know when you would like to visit.
