Stone aggregate is, unsurprisingly, just stone that’s been crushed. Unlike gravel which is naturally formed, crushed stone aggregate is broken down to the required size using a crusher. This type of stone aggregate is most typically used in the production of tarmac. It’s coated in bitumen or tar and used for road surfacing. It can also be used when mixing concrete. Sometimes it’s used simply as it comes, as a bulk fill. Using stone aggregate for materials in your project will give them volume, stability and resistance to erosion.

When ordering stone aggregates, it’s important to be careful where you get them from. Most suppliers don’t have access to their own quarry. This means that any stone they supply to you will have been sourced from elsewhere. In order for them to get this stone to sell, they will have had to pay. To make purchasing the stone worthwhile for their business, they have to charge you more, or risk making a loss. Crushed stone and other aggregates are very heavy. This means that if they have to be transported a long distance, delivery will be costly. In some cases, delivery may exceed the cost of the materials themselves.

At Esk Quarry we aren’t most suppliers. We have our own quarry in Faugh near Carlisle. This means that we extract the stone ourselves and don’t need to pay anyone else to do it. Our saving is then passed on to you. By selling directly, we keep your costs as low as possible. Being a local supplier also means that you’ll pay less for delivery. You’ll also get your aggregates sooner, because we’re nearby.

Currently we are developing our stone service. We have several stock piles of large unsorted material including large amounts of sand stone.
