GRANITE WORK SURFACES BLACKBURNAcknowledge Wikipedia for the following information
Prehistory There is little evidence of settlement in the Blakewater valley (where Blackburn would later be situated) during the Prehistoric period. It is generally thought that most human activity in East Lancashire during this period occurred on hilltops. Evidence of such activity during the Bronze Age has been discovered in the form of urn burials, two examples of which have been found in the hills around Blackburn. In 1879, a cinerary urn was discovered beneath a tumulus at Revidge, north of the town. Another was excavated at Pleasington Cemetery, west of the present town, by gravedigger Grant Higson in 1996. That prehistoric man was active in the area now covered by the town centre is inferred from the presence of a possible sacred spring, perhaps in use during the Iron Age, at All Hallows Spring on Railway Road. Roman Blackburn Blackburn is thought to have originated as a small settlement along the Roman road between Bremetennacum Veteranorum and Mancunium which passed through the town to the east of the present Blackburn Cathedral, probably crossing the River Blakewater at Salford (not the present-day city so named).
Dalbeattie In Dumfries and Galloway Is Said To Be The Birthplace Of Granite Polishing. Granite Quarrying Craignair quarry is a notable town landmark Formerly granite quarrying was an important part of the Dalbeattie economy. The most prominent of which is the characteristic Craignair quarry which is clearly visible to the west of the town. Dalbeattie Granite works was established in 1820 and was situated in Craignair Street, following a direct route from Craignair quarry. The industry died down locally around 1883 due to cheaper imports from Denmark. Many of the workers immigrated to other parts of the world in order to find work, a number immigrated to the USA to work at a sister quarry in Westerly, Rhode Island. Dalbeattie is credited with developing the technique of polishing granite stone to form a shiny surface. This technique was exported throughout the world by the skilled workers of Dalbeattie as they travelled.
