Safeguarding a sustainable strategic asset - The Building Stone Database for England

Stone Digital
Working with the British Geological Survey, geologists and historic building professionals, the Strategic Stone Study project aims to identify the indigenous building stones and their sources used in England’s built heritage. This information will help mineral planners to identify and investigate potential safeguarding areas and conservation professionals to source suitable stone for the repair of historic buildings and new build. In 2022 this mammoth project will be completed to create the Building Stone Database for England. This presentation will outline the project and showcase the database.
