St. Aldhelm's Quarry

Treleven Haysom working Purbeck Marble CapitalEstablished at St. Aldhelm's Quarry in 1934, W J Haysom & Son has a reputation and expertise resulting from generations of family involvement in quarrying and stone processing in Purbeck.

There has been a long association with, not only church and cathedral restoration, but all kinds of general masonry and specialised dimension work.

St. Aldhelm's Quarry is a source of Purbeck-Portland Stone yielding the attractive marine fossil Spangle bed and the relatively plain Pond Freestone, so prized for carving and monumental work.

Landers Quarries Ltd

Trading since 1918 under three generations of the Lander family, the masonry works is now under Haysom management.

A large new workshop has been constructed on the site and has been equipped with new, state of the art machinery: a two metre primary circular saw, a secondary saw, a texturing machine, a polishing machine and a lathe.

Each bed of Purbeck stone is a different colour ranging from grey/blue to cream/beige. All beds are of good quality crystalline limestone laid down in the Jurassic/Cretaceous era and each layer is unique in its fossil content.

It makes excellent building stone and internal and external paving. It is highly sought after in polished form for cladding, hearths, mantels and vanity/worktops. It is also popular for all aspects of landscaping.

This site provides further information about our quarries and range of masonry products and services.
