History of Hartham Park

Our Hartham Park Bath Stone Quarry is the oldest Bath Stone Quarry still in operation today and dates back to 1810. In those days every piece of stone was hand cut and sawn; pick axes and hand-held saws were the tools of the trade rather than the powerful machinery we have access to today. Bath Stone was one of the stones used to build the ancient City of Bath; from the Royal Crescent to the Pump Room. The stone is extracted underground at Hartham Park and, technically, the correct name for it is underground quarry rather than a mine and our specialised team on site has a wealth of experience, some of whom have worked together for 20 years.
