THE BUILDING STONES OF SHROPSHIRE

By M. Ann Scard

(Second hand copy in very good condition)

The geology of Shropshire is more varied than any other area of comparable size in Britain, and perhaps the World. Shropshire therefore has few rivals for the variety of its landscape and architecture.

  

Prior to the mass production and increased mobility of building materials, communities were very dependent on locally available supplies and therefore a study of buildings closely reflects the distribution of the underlying rocks.

  

This book will be of interest not only to amateur and professional geologists, but also to anyone interested in the architecture and history of this remarkable county. 

  

Published by Swan Hill Press. 1990. Soft cover. 102 pages. Black and white photographs and maps with four pages of colour photographs. Very good condition.
