Bonawe Quarry was a significant influence on the parish.
We have a lot to learn and share about the history of Quarry, the business, the men, and their lives.

The quarry has been of national importance for many decades, and created a whole community associated with working and running the site.

There used to be several significant multi-occupancy buildings, as well as shop and post office.

There are a number of "big Blasts" that reached the national papers. We have the articles saved in the Archive.
