My Introduction to Whinstone

We were chatting away about whinstone when he said “A new sill visitor centre is to be built on the site of the existing centre and YHA hostel at Once Brewed, Bardon Mill, adjacent to the UNESCO World Heritage Centre along Hadrian’s Wall”.  I love getting a chance to talk to Bill Purvis, because we both know so much about subjects that the other knows so little about!

I get to learn about rock formations, quarry operations, wagon safety features, how to lay roads and so much more and because Bill is passionate and knowledgeable about his subject, I find it all fascinating. It helps of course that he can explain it all in layman’s terms!  I’m all about building websites, producing videos, promoting small businesses and keeping them safe at the same time – so what I understand about Bill’s world could be written on the back of a matchbox!  Well – maybe that used to be true. I’ve got a ways to go yet, but I’m improving!

Safety legislation is regularly updated for the trucking industry. Our aim is to use the safest possible working methods, even when not yet required by law; for instance in our use of the latest safety cameras.

Safety is paramount for our customers, for our staff and for our suppliers.

Cameras feature prominently in the area of safety. Two particular examples are our in-cab cameras that record what the driver sees, and our side view cameras that allow the driver to see all along the side of the truck, which for the nearside is not traditionally possible. (more…)
