Burlington Stone is taking up the Wear to Walney cycle challenge for local charities, St. Mary’s Hospice and the Calvert Trust on the 8th – 10thNovember 2013.
Four amateur riders, Nick Williams, Ian Ramsay, Chris Biddick and Jonathan Turner have volunteered to undertake the daunting 153-mile journey from Sunderland on the North Sea to Barrow-in-Furness on the Irish Sea.
Miss Lucy Cavendish, Chairman of Burlington Stone and Trustee of St. Mary’s Hospice will also be joining the last leg of the cycle challenge.
Our riders will be traversing the breadth of Northern England all in the name of raising money for 2 local charities, namely St Mary’s Hospice in Ulverston, who provide specialised supportive and palliative care for people with life limiting conditions throughout South Cumbria, and the Calvert Trust, who give disabled people the opportunity to undertake outdoor adventure activities.
Any sponsorship support would be gratefully received.

It was with mixed emotions that Burlington Stone thanked Terry Armistead, Production Manager, for his dedication to the business over the past 48 years and to wish him well in his retirement at a special party on Friday 5th May 2017. Having joined Burlington Stone at the age of 15, Terry has played a key role within the production facility at Kirkby-in-Furness. The vast knowledge and experience he has gained over the past 48 years, along with his “can-do” attitude means he will be greatly missed by colleagues and customers alike. Luckily, Terry has kindly agreed to continue to work for Burlington for a couple of days per week.
It is with delight that Burlington Stone’s Westmorland Green flamed paving has won the Landscaping Category at this year’s Natural Stone Awards 2016. Working together with Hardscape, based in Bolton, Burlington Stone supplied their Green natural stone for an integral part of the refurbishment of the Deansgate – Castlefield Metro Station project in Manchester.
The Role: This position is a full-time role providing support to the Sales and Customer Service department and is based at the Company’s Head Office at Kirkby-in-Furness Quarry.
