Quarry Extension

Details & Location

Extension to a Building Stone Quarry in the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Clitheroe, Lancashire.


Granted permission in 2012

Leeming Quarry produces an attractive buff coloured sandstone for restoration and new build projects in the local area. Stonyhurst college is built from Leeming stone and the quarry was able to supply all the stone needed for the large extension to the college. Stephenson Halliday was commissioned to design a phased working method and restoration scheme for submission with the planning application and supporting environmental assessments. Once approval was granted, we prepared information to allow the discharge of conditions.
