Living Limestone Weekend

Celebrate this marvellous material, the quarrymen who harvested it, the stonemasons who fashioned it, and the fantastic fossils they have revealed.

Witness the traditional craft of a dry stone waller building a new section of wall.

Examine fossils and stone working tools from the Museum’s collection.

Meet a master stonemason and watch him at work.

If Dorset’s limestone cliffs form the Jurassic Coast, then the Cotswolds must be Jurassic Park!

Free event. Donations welcome.
