  • What size gravel should I use for pathways and drives?

    The most common sizes we supply are 10mm and 20mm gravel. 10mm is usually best for pathways, as it is easy to walk on. The 20mm is best for drives, because the smaller 10mm gravel may get into the treads of car tyres.

Smiths’ host Stakeholder tours at Gill Mill Quarry - 

Martin Layer, Estates and Planning Manager, along with Quarry Manager, Ben Strickland hosted quarry tours in June for the ‘Lower Windrush Valley Project’ and the ‘Oxford Geology Trust’, followed later on in the month by the ‘Campaign for the Protection of Rural England’.

 Open dialogue with interested parties, or Stakeholders, from the local communities around our operations, is a commitment Smiths’ have made by adoption of their Corporate Social Responsibility and Environmental policies. The aim being to inform parties about our operations, underline the importance of our vital, staple products to the local built environment and local economy, as well as listening to any concerns they may have. It’s also good to demonstrate, with high quality restoration, how we can make Biodiversity and Geodiversity gains over the original state of excavated land.

Martin Layer said: ’ We were delighted to show some important local stakeholders what we get up to at Gill Mill, we’re very proud of the standard of our operation and ultimately, our restored land. Quarrying really is an engine for boosting nature conservation, as well as providing opportunities for increased public access in the countryside. It’s important that we demonstrate this to interested parties-after all we need their support and understanding to be a sustainable company and to keep doing the things we do well.
