Crosby Ravensworth school visits Shap Beck quarry

On Tuesday 3rd March 2020, we hosted 14 Crosby Ravensworth School pupils aged 7-11 years at Shap Beck Quarry for a tour of the site. During their visit, the children got to see our Hitachi 890 Excavator and CAT 772 dump truck, the primary crusher and the control room. Their visit also incorporated a blast of our lower pink bench – which was certainly a crowd pleaser! 

Duncan Priestly, Headteacher said “On behalf of everyone at Crosby Ravensworth Primary School, we'd like to say a huge thank you for welcoming us to the quarry.  The children had a wonderful morning and I don't think anyone will forget that blast!! Please pass on our thanks to all your staff for their time and expertise”.
