Stone Study Database – use this resource for free/join the survey!

From Historic England:

Have you used the Strategic Stone Study database?

This is a free, online database of England’s building stones, their sources and representative structures. You can interrogate the GIS system and download data spread sheets and guides for each county.

Working with the British Geological Survey and consultants,  Historic England’s Strategic Stone Study project to collect all the data for all the English counties, will be finished in March 2020.

We’d really appreciate your feedback about your experience of using it. You can do this by completing this short online survey.
