TITLE
The ‘Rock Shop’ at Mountsorrel
ARTICLE
Lafarge Aggregates’ flagship quarry near Loughborough had recognised the growing market for sales direct to the public, of decorative stone. A specially designated area was therefore set-up for the ‘Rock Shop’. The area chosen is well away from the routes used by the Cat 777’s and most of the tippers. Signs are clear and set at car height. Cars are weighed in and out on the same weighbridge, which is close-by, so risk of a driver becoming disorientated is negligible.
