THE DELABOLE SLATE COMPANY IN NORTH CORNWALL


The Delabole Slate Company Ltd is a private Cornish Company, owned and operated by two generations of the Hamilton Family. As the name suggests, it mines World renowned Delabole Slate from its quarry in North Cornwall.


Delabole Slate is truly a time tested product and has been used as a building material in Roofing, Flooring and Walling for well over 600 years. It is the extreme durability and versatility that has made it the preferred choice of builders from medieval days to the present.


The Company still produces traditional and hand crafted building products to this very day, many to individual customer requirements. Although modern mining methods are now employed in the quarry, there remains no substitute for the skill of the Delabole craftsmen that has been handed down from Grandfathers and Fathers to their sons. In this respect the Company is unashamedly old fashioned.


Tours operate from May to September but you can visit the website on http://www.delaboleslate.co.uk/ any time you wish.
