This former sand quarry at Bishop’s Court in Exeter was acquired from Aggregate Industries and represents Harrow Estates’ second acquisition from the company. Extending to approximately 21 acres overall and situated within the City of Exeter, the site is within a short distance of Digby and Sowton Railway Station and Exeter Chiefs Rugby Stadium.
The site was historically quarried before reaching the end of its practical economic use for mineral extraction. After this time, the quarry was filled with surplus sand which was subsequently processed and sold and, most recently, part of the site was occupied by Aggregate Industries for concrete batching, aggregates storage and distribution.
