Society of Garden Designers Visit

Published: 6th October 2017

Visit from Society of Garden Designers - Barnhill Quarry

We were thrilled to welcome members of the Society of Garden Designers for a tour of our quarry and stoneworks.  The Society cluster group meets regularly to arrange garden and supplier visits and discuss design-related topics.  Our site was recommended by garden designer and group coordinator, Lisa Cox, after she specified our stone for a garden project in Monmouth.

“…I suggested it might be a nice idea to visit you at FOD.  Such a gorgeous local stone and many of the designers have never been to a quarry before – I think it really helps to know the provenance and process of products when you’re designing,” said garden designer, Lisa Cox.

After a brief introduction from our sales manager, Paul Ramsey, we headed off up the hill to the quarry where the group saw the extraction process.  A tour of our production facility and bankershop followed before lunch and networking at the Speech House hotel.

The group included professionals from Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Monmouthshire and South Wales.
