Tarmac sponsors local podcast

Published by
World Cement,

Tarmac at Tunstead has sponsored a series of podcasts that will be produced by Discover Buxton Tours, and will bring to life the story of the quarrymen of the Buxton Lime Firms, amongst other local historical themes.

Tarmac has sponsored the production of the podcasts over the next 12 months. The 30 minute podcasts will feature local people and historians recounting some of the amazing tales from Buxton’s limestone quarries in the past, as well as an eclectic mix of other stories from the history of the town.

Michael Clement, local radio enthusiast and researcher with Discover Buxton Tours, is creating the recordings and they will be available to download via Discover Buxton’s website and the local newspaper The Buxton Advertiser.

Viv Russell, Lime & Powders Director at Tarmac in Tunstead, said: “At least one of these podcasts will feature the stories of the 15 soldiers who worked at the Buxton Lime Firms and died at the Battle of the Somme. It will tell their individual stories of where they came from and how they lost their lives, bringing it home to us how much families in our area suffered as a result of World War I. We are pleased to be supporting Discover Buxton again as we really do feel that the podcasts help to bring the past to life.”

Annetta Christie, managing director of Discover Buxton, said: “We are really pleased that Tarmac has decided to sponsor the podcasts again. We will be releasing a new podcast every month on a different aspect of local history. We have had a fantastic reaction to the podcasts we have released so far and are looking forward to producing even more thanks to the very kind donation.”
