The Building Stones of Newcastle upon Tyne

Saturday 2 August, 11.00am-1pm.

Derek Teasdale

The churches, shops, banks and public buildings of Newcastle upon Tyne’s city centre are built and/or faced with many types of stone. Whilst most use local sandstones of varying quality, many other buildings proudly display exotic rock types from around the globe. This gentle 2 hour walk will highlight some of the architectural and geologic gems right under our noses.

Suitable for all – beginners and experts alike.

Meet on the steps at the front of the Great North Museum: Hancock, Newcastle (post code NE2 4PT).
