After-Use

Quarries may be returned to agriculture with little, if any, sign that they have ever been worked. Alternatively, they also often offer long-term opportunities to create new environments that benefit both people and wildlife. We have a build a reputation for a thoughtful approach to after-use which means that former workings are not simply allowed to fill with water. If water has a place in the restoration, lakes are carefully sculpted with islands, differing water levels and surrounding planted land areas to create diverse environments for a range of species. Fisheries may also be an opportunity, providing enjoyment and access to superb countryside for many people.
