Welcome to E Moorhouse and Sons Ltd

As a long established family business, E Moorhouse and Sons Ltd supply the construction industry and private customers with quality St. Bees red sandstone, ready mixed concrete mortars and screeds. (see About Us page for Readymix details)

With our own environmentally managed Quarry, we are able to source high volumes of quality St. Bees red sandstone and cut and dress this in our own masonary yard at Bigrigg in West Cumbria.

St Bees red sandstone is an ideal natural material for use by the construction industry or for smaller scale private projects.
