On 02 October 2023 we rebranded to Heidelberg Materials. As well as aligning with our parent company, our new name better reflects the company we are today.
We’re focused on driving down carbon emissions, increasing the use of recycled materials to grow the circular economy and leading our industry towards net zero with innovative projects such as carbon capture and storage.
Some of the new Heidelberg Materials signage and vehicle livery is already in place and we hope to have completed this within the next two years. Please note that our email and website details have also changed.
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.
Essex Rock regularly visit the site to study the geology and archaeological studies are carried out by Archaeology South East which is part of University College London.
