Portland Stone

31 Jul 2015

A visit to Albion Stone on the island of Portland in Dorset to select some Portland Stone for a project in London. Above, a block from the quary is being sliced up into slabs.

 

 

A similar block to the one above after having been sliced up.

 

 

Amazing the things that you find!

Bowers Roach with its distinctive Turreted Gastropods (Portland Screws) and clam shells. This stone is to be used as wall cladding in a garden and will be closely up-lit in order express the voids.
