About Porthoustock

Aram Resources' West of England Quarry is situated on the East Coast of the Lizard Peninsula, adjacent to the village of Porthoustock. The quarry works a dark green diorite rock mass and has its own wharf allowing the loading of aggregates directly from the quarry to ships.

The wharf is protected from the prevailing southwesterly Atlantic weather systems, ensuring minimal disruption to ship loading.

A few fishing boats are pulled up on the stony beach.
