Aggregate & Quarry

Fairhurst Stone Merchants manufacture, supply and deliver a wide range of bulk aggregates and blockstone products from both our quarry operations at Whitworth near Rochdale and from our yard at Settle in North Yorkshire.

Whitworth quarry is famous for being the raw material from which one of the most durable, strongest and hardest Yorkstone Paving available in this country is produced from, and this same raw material is used to manufacture high quality aggregates and sands under strict quality control utilising the latest, most efficient manufacturing plant and equipment available.

Both delivery and collection options are available and we have the ability to supply both large and small contracts, with significant quantities of aggregates and sand normally available from stock.
