Southam has long been involved in quarrying and the local heritage organisation. The Friends of the Cardall Collection, recently held a fascinating exhibition for locals on the history of our nearby quarry.
The 2nd Southam Cub Scout unit visited the exhibition to find out if they had any relatives who had worked at the Quarry!
CEMEX and the Rugby Benevolent Fund have supported the organisation with grants to help pay for the premise’s costs.
They also have one of the old Southam Quarry locos “Jurassic” and they are in the process of restoring it with Lincolnshire Coast Light Railway who hope to have it running in Skegness from next August!
