On the 21st March 2018 Delank Quarry had the pleasure of welcoming HRH Prince Charles for a private visit around the quarry in Cornwall.
The Duchy are currently developing a small town community of over 4,000 houses including a school, shops and a church near Newquay. Over 40% of Delanks overall production goes to the Duchy and as a small business the Prince has always shown a keen interest in the granite, and as such he requested a visit to see the production process in person.
He was in great spirits on the day and really seemed to enjoy his visit. We know we certainly did. Below are a selection of photos of his visit to the quarry, Enjoy!
