As its name suggests the quarry is situated on Broughton Moor, mid-way between Broughton-in-Furness and Coniston and has been worked since the middle of the 19th Century. Broughton Moor is a mid green stone, often highlighted by contrasting white veins and beautiful tone changes that reflect its natural origins. Broughton Moor can be extracted in a variety of green tones to add a dark and light green contrast to surfaces yet purvey the beauty of its natural markings. Broughton Moor has been used for generations to provide walling, flooring, cladding, cills, worktops, and stairs. The richness of Broughton Moor makes it ideal for use in interior furniture and fittings, whether in traditional or modern design schemes.
