The Team

Ham and Doulting Stone Ltd, was set up on 1st Dec 1992 and is jointly owned & run by father and son team, Richard & Zak England. Based in Somerton, Somerset, England it is an evergrowing family business which is known globally for its quality stone.

Richard England's first foray into the stone industry was in the early 1960's working in demolition and stone reclamation. This led to the founding of 'Richard England UK' which in turn became 'Ham And Doulting Stone Co.' in the early-90's. Their first big job was being involved in the construction of the Quedam Centre, Yeovil, Somerset in the 1980's.

Zak England

Managing Director

Zak joined his Father in the business 20 years ago and together they have grown Ham and Doulting Stone into the company it is today. With his background in mechanical engineering, primarily learned on the tools, Zak is very much “hands on” and can usually be found at the controls of the myriad quarrying plant, behind the wheel of the lorry collecting block or installing new machinery in the factory. Never frightened to get his hands dirty, and with a strong work ethic, as Managing Director Zak leads from the front and is always on the lookout for new opportunities to grow and improve the company.

Richard England

Director (Retired)

Richard began his career in the early 60’s starting out with his father who was in the building industry. He has met some amazing people on his ‘stone’ journey and visited many places. His love affair with stone still continues to this day and he is often found at Ham Hill with his son Zak, down the mine at Corsham or in the office telling stories of years gone by.
