The quarrying industry plays a vital role in maintaining and improving biodiversity and Longcliffe is passionately committed to the protection of the environment. We always strive to be a good neighbour and our substantial investment in environmentally friendly measures will ensure a lasting legacy for the benefit of the future generations.
