Quarry worker at St Ouen
Only two major quarries remain - Ronez, which is slowly carving out a large hole in the north coast of the island, and Granite Products in St Peter's Valley. However, in days gone by there were quarries, small and large, scattered all over the island. Wherever a granite rock face was exposed, landowners sought to profit by extracting stone.
