The Institute of Quarrying (IQ) and National Stone Centre (NSC) have merged. Together we will work to inspire people to engage with the origin, the industry and the history of stone.
Officially opened in 1990, the NSC is set within six former limestone quarries on a 40-acre Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).
Our vision is to create a world-class visitor experience and an internationally significant centre of excellence for the quarrying and mineral products industry.
We are thrilled to be able to share our plans about how we intend to develop the site to support our ambitions.
