IQ Yorkshire Branch - The National Stone Centre
The Bridge Hotel and Spa, Wetherby, North Yorkshire, LS22 5HS
James Thorne, CEO of the Institute of Quarrying (IQ) will present the developments at the National Stone Centre (NSC), an educational charity recently acquired by IQ.
As an industry which is always in need of attracting new talent, the NSC provides a public outlet for the sector to inspire future generations to enter the minerals industry. Based on the edge of the Derbyshire Peak District, the site offers huge potential to host public and industry events. Plans for a new learning and visitor centre were submitted in November 2022 meeting with significant media interest. The facility will provide learning space, a substantial exhibition area, a café, shop and outdoor activity space.
