Looe Festival of the Sea, Raft Race 2017

Tuesday, 6 June 2017 11:20:15 Europe/London

 

 

The Flintstone Flyer

For the first time Lantoom entered the Looe Raft Race. The Festival of the Sea is an annual event organized by the Looe Marine Conservation group in conjunction with the annual Looe Raft Race organized by the Looe Boat Owners Association. Each year people from all over Cornwall flock to Looe to take part in or spectate the raft race. The course is lengthy and the competition fierce.

Going as The Flintstones (Who else?) We made a valiant effort but unfortunately our seasoned competitors had the edge and we didn't finish within the top 3. However We all had a great time and have already started planning for next year's raft race. YABADABADOO!

Lantoom to the rescue

Thursday, 25 May 2017 12:01:13 Europe/London

 

Lantoom's new guest

Recently Lantoom had a new and unusual visitor to the quarry. However this visitor wasn't interested in stone, he in fact was a buzzard (which we later called Bernard). It appeared poor Bernard had some sort of injury which prevented him from flying very far.

Spotting the bird, we decided to call the RSPB. Bernard was collected later on in the day and is in good hands. The RSPB informed us that sometimes buzzards like Bernard can become fatigued due to lack of food, this is why he was unable to fly. We thought we would share with you some of the great shots we got of Bernard whilst we waited for him to be rescued. We wish Bernard a speedy recovery

Looking ahead to 2017

Wednesday, 4 January 2017 09:03:04 Europe/London

Looking ahead to 2017

 

With the influx of bad news in 2016 (celebrity deaths and Donald Trump to name a few) we can console ourselves by thinking of what a busy year its been in the building trade. Many beautiful buildings have risen and the use of natural stone is apparent throughout many of them.

 

Happy New Year

 

 

Looking ahead at 2017, it looks to be a year of promise; an opportunity to create, to build and to incorporate natural stone into our lives. There will always be a few surprises along the way, but with an eye for creativity and a love for all things stone, together we can build a better world.

Lantoom staff are particularly excited regarding the new Tim Burton film. This isn’t just because it includes such household names like Samuel L. Jackson and Eva Green, but it also was partly shot in and around Cornwall. The film due to hit the cinemas on the 30th of September 2016 has been long anticipated. Check out the trailer.

Jamaica Inn granite farm shop now open

Tuesday, 13 September 2016 13:58:28 Europe/London

Jamaica Inn

 

After months of hard work, the farm shop at Jamaica Inn has been completed and is now open to the public. The beautiful extension has incorporated Lantoom Cornish granite to achieve an in-keeping section to this historic building. But it doesn't stop there.

 

Granite interior walling

 

Even the interior has made use of inspiring natural stone to really add character to the inside of the shop, this was achieved by using our Portuguese granite.

 

Granite facing stone

 

Jamaica Inn, situated in Bolventor, Cornwall was built in 1750 and made famous by a book of the same name written by Daphne du Maurier in 1936. We hope it will remain for at least another 266 years, continuing to inspire visitors and locals alike.
