Ham & Doulting moves back into Park Lane Bath Stone underground quarry
Ham & Doulting Stone Company is returning to Park Lane underground quarry to extract Bath Stone.
The company spent £800,000 opening up a new portal at Park Lane, which is under Neston Park in Wiltshire, in 2012. Then the West of England flooded and Park Lane along with it, so Ham & Doulting took over production of Bath stone at Elm Park. Now the company says it has 2,000 tonnes of Elm Park stone in stock and it can return to Park Lane without letting down any customers for the Elm Park stone.
Park Lane opened in 1880 and was considered one of the most successful quarries in the Corsham area.
