What is Bath Stone ?
Bath Stone is an Oolitic Limestone which is comprised of granular
fragments of calcium carbonate which was originally obtained from
the Combe Down and Bathampton Down Mines under Combe Down in
Somerset. Bath Stone's warm, honey colouring gives the World
Heritage City of Bath in England its distinctive appearance. An
important feature of Bath Stone is that it is a freestone, that is
one that can be sawn or 'squared up' in any direction, unlike other
rocks such as slate, which forms distinct layers. Bath Stone has
been used extensively as a building material throughout southern
England for churches, houses and public buildings such as railway
stations. Some of the quarries from which the stone was taken are
still in use; however the majority have been converted to other
purposes or are being filled in.
