‘Let’s Rock’, open day event at the Somerset Earth Science Centre blasted off in great style at the Mendip Rocks festival on October 3rd when a box containing all 15 different types of rocks to be found on the Mendips was presented by Aggregate Industries.
Quarry Faces: the Story of Mendip Stone is now available. The book tells the story of quarrying in the Mendips, with special emphasis on the area’s nationally important roadstone industry. See full story for a list of outlets.
There was a good turn out for the Quarry Faces celebration event to mark the end of the project on May 15. The event also saw the launch of our book Quarry Faces: the story of Mendip stone.
