Somerset Building Stones

Somerset Building Stones

A corespondent has brought THIS WEB PAGE to my notice. And I am glad they did! It is a wonderful resource recording the traditional building stones used in Somerset.

So far the authors, Garry Dawson and Peter Wright, have covered Taunton Dene and the Quantock Hills east to the River Parrett and are working on West Somerset and South Somerset west of the River Parrett. One hopes the rest will be covered before long! 

The extent of the survey by August 2019

The amount of detail which can be accessed from the page is fantastic - how about a spreadsheet with 40 columns and 2580 rows!!!

The web page is part of the web site of the South West Heritage Trust and that too is well worth exploring. I found the section on films to be particularly interesting.
