London Building Stone Website

Excellent site detailling London buildings and other constructions and quarries etc. sourcing building materials.

Remember from years back, before elf 'n safety, one of those quarries (Haytor) we had a long scout hike with checkpoints and unexpected obstacles/challenges. Swimming out to retrieve an object from that quarry was one of them... COLD!!! especially as an unexpected activity in the middle of a long hike (no towels etc and it was a cold wet day). Thank goodness that wasn't my short straw and I could spectate that obstacle.
I had dialogue with Glyn a year or so ago - thanks for reminding us of his excellent blog. Our correspondence was mainly about London Bridge and Strand Bridge.
