Without doubt this is the most historic and prestigious job any quarry in the UK is currently undertaking and one which all Chorley and the North West should be proud of.

The main projects ongoing today and over the coming years are the construction of the west sacristy and the central towers. The Tower of Jesus is currently being built and it will be flanked by the four Towers of the Evangelists which have also commenced. There will also be a tower dedicated to the Virgin Mary above the apse. The Sagrada Familia will be completed by the construction of the west front, or Glory facade, and presently the ambition is for the temple to be fully restored by 2026, 100 years after Gaudi’s death.

The Armstrongs group regularly receive visits from the Architects and Stonemasons working on the project in order to review the quarry and the latest extractions, and Emma Armstrong visited Barcelona to see works first hand in 2015. Without doubt this is the most historic and prestigious job any quarry in the UK is currently undertaking and one which all Chorley and the North West should be proud of.
