Blast at Longhoughton Quarry

20,000 tonnes of whinstone rock was safely blasted using 4600 kg of explosives.

The blasted rock will be processed to create a variety of whinstone materials from prime single size aggregates to various sub-base products which will service many construction projects across the region. Well done to our drill and blast team who worked efficiently, accurately and safely.

At the quarry in Alnwick, Northumberland, we also produce a wide range of construction materials in carboniferous limestone as well as whinstone all to the relevant BSEN-13242 and SHW-803 criteria.

All materials are available for third party purchase.
