News & Events

The 'In at the Start' project on the new Pennycroft Quarry extension run by High Batts Nature Reserve has won a prestigious international Quarry Life Award in a competition sponsored by HeidelbergCement that recognises the skills and efforts of a wide-ranging team of conservation volunteers, photographers and surveyors.

The work will continue over the coming months and years and, for now, the extension is off-limits except on special occasions.  Monitoring and management of the site goes on even as Heidelberg begins to extract the valuable gravels from deep pits within it.
