The Stones of Hestercombe

'The Stones of Hestercombe' is the latest publication by Hugh Prudden of the Somerset Geology Group. It describes a geological tour of the rocks and stonework of Hestercombe Gardens, Cheddon Fitzpaine, Taunton. The unique geological features in the gardens, including an outcrop of rare diorite, mean that it is recognised as a RIGS (Regionally Important Geological Site).

The book is beautifully written, exceptionally well illustrated and covers a great deal of history as well as detailed geology.

It is thoroughly recommended and can be obtained from:-
The Hestercombe Gardens Trust
Cheddon Fitzpaine
Taunton TA2 8LG
