Community website for our Tytherington quarry

Hello future

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.

Tytherington is widely known for its limestone quarries, which have been evident in the village for 150 years. Demand for stone increased considerably during the 1870s as farming began to decline and quarrying provided a valuable source of income and employment, sustaining the local economy.

Today we extract around 1.8 million tonnes of aggregate a year from Tytherington quarry. The limestone is considered a nationally significant resource and is used to make ready-mixed and precast concrete products, as well as asphalt for use in road construction and maintenance. Tytherington is also one of the main suppliers of aggregates for HS2.

We are committed to being a good neighbour and actively support local initiatives and programmes which benefit the community and environment.

We have 14 employees at Tytherington, plus many more in our supply chain of contractors and support staff. We also work in close partnership with a number of conservation bodies to protect and enhance biodiversity at the site and regularly host school and college visits.
