Welcoming the next generation

Cole Runnels

As a company, we feel passionately about all things stone and have a number of skilled masons working for us to keep traditional skills alive. So what about the future?

Lovell Stone Group continues to play it’s part in raising the profile of quarrying, encouraging young people to consider it as a career and understand better the amazing opportunities it provides.

We are delighted to welcome Cole Runnalls to the Hartham Park underground quarry in Corsham.

Cole is a placement student from the Camborne School of Mines, which is part of Exeter University. He has just completed his second year of a 3 year mining engineering degree and will be with us for two months, gaining invaluable experience and insight into how a quarry operates and how the stone is extracted.

As an industry we need to do more to encourage the next generation to consider quarrying as a career as well as traditional skills such as masonry, so that we secure the best future for generations to come.
