Stoke Hall quarry and Locharbriggs quarry have both been worked continuously since the early 1800s with masonry production on site. Building records for both sandstones include notable landmark buildings in various locations across the UK. Doddington Pink Sandstone has been widely used as a building stone across Scotland and the North of England since the 1800s. Red St Bees is renowned for its use as a building stone not only in the UK, but also the USA.
