The stone that helped build Sheffield

Monday, January 30, 2012

Sheffield’s Town Hall, the Peace Gardens and the Mercure Hotel are all built using the same local stone which is quarried just outside Sheffield at Stoke Hall Quarry. Recently Heeley constituent Alan Dale invited Meg to visit and see the various operations on the site.

 

Alan overseas operations at the quarry and explained to Meg that the stone is now used in the cladding of new buildings and the restoration of historic buildings. Work at the quarry has also received recognition for enhancing biodiversity.


Meg said:

“It was fascinating to discover more about the stone that has helped to build so many iconic Sheffield landmarks, and to see it being quarried, cut and finished on the same site.


I have a keen interest in manufacturing so it was fascinating to find out more about this part of the industry, which is producing stone for buildings across the country.”
