About Bulls Lodge quarry

Bulls Lodge provides around 750,000 tonnes of sand and gravel per annum to the South East market. Sales are mainly for concrete production but the site also contains asphalt, concrete, bagging and third party recycling operations. The site measures 330 hectares and had reserves of 30 million tonnes of glacio-fluvial sand and gravel between 5 and 10 metres thick. Extraction is by loading shovel onto a conveyor system to the process plant which has a capacity of 425 tonnes per hour. There is also a third party volumetric concrete plant operating on the site.

Interesting fact:

The quarry was opened in 1990 and is expected to last until around 2030.
