Attenborough Community

Our Attenborough quarry has contributed to the built environment in and around Nottingham for more than 70 years. Its aggregates have played (and continue to play) a part in local houses, schools, hospitals, roads and much more.


While the processing plant is located on the edge of the Nottinghamshire village of Attenborough, quarrying has more recently taken place across the county border in Derbyshire. Sand and gravel are transported in barges across previously flooded working areas to the processing plant.

The fact that the gravel processing and ready-mixed concrete operations are on the edge of the village creates a need for close liaison which is carried out by local management on a day-to-day basis but also by a formal liaison committee.

While quarrying continues, earlier phases have been restored to become a popular nature reserve that has achieved Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) status. The145-hectare mosaic of habitats is now home to a legion of wildlife and is much loved by thousands of people from a wide surrounding area who also enjoy its community and educational facilities.
