There are a number of actively working quarries currently able to supply stone within Shropshire and neighbouring counties.

This table displays details of working quarries in the vicinity of Shropshire, marked with red dots on the accompanying map.

It is strongly recommended that each potential quarry be visited prior to placing a substantial order for stone, to ensure compatibility with existing material and a capacity to produce material of the required dimensions and quality. There can be considerable variation within a single quarry, depending on the bed(s) that can be worked, and modern extraction processes may not be compatible with producing dimension stone or ashlar.

You may also wish to consider the use of recycled stone, recovered from demolished buildings in the vicinity. English Heritage have published a leaflet to assist determining and obtaining compatible replacement stone entitled "Identifying and Sourcing Stone for Historic Building Repair", available by clicking here.

The County also has many disused quarries which may yield potential sources of stone, subject to landowner (and possibly planning) permission. For further details, click here.
