About Us

Cumbria Quarrying Services was initially formed in 2005 when we offered extraction and other stone services on an independent basis. This was until 2007 when owner and proprietor Alan Hamilton acquired Bowscar Quarry.

Alan is still heavily involved in the day to day running of the site and will be seen everywhere; from “The Hole” (the quarry itself) to the Sawing Shed and all over the country in pursuit of some new and unique product.

With a combined experience in the stone Industry of over 75 years within our ranks, we are market leaders in the natural stone industry and remain committed to being an independent, family run business. We don’t answer to a boardroom full of investors and directors, we only have to concern ourselves with one person - the customer. It is this freedom of running the business on our own terms that ensures only the very best service.

"Believing in core values is key to a successful business."
