Lovell stone group is a family business with a reputation for excellence

Lovell Stone Group has grown significantly over recent years and we now own and operate five quarries within the South West region; all of which offer iconic British stone to customers throughout the UK. In addition to our own reserves we also process and supply other heritage British Stones such as Portland and Lincolnshire.

Lovell Stone Group continues to invest heavily in state-of-the-art equipment and training to equip our specialist staff with the tools and resources required to provide leading industry knowledge, experience and insight.

We have built a sterling reputation based on our excellent customer service, as well as our ability to supply bespoke products as a competitive price, while maintaining a very high quality.
