The Building Stones of Newcastle upon Tyne

Outdoor Event, 11.00am-1.00pm

The churches, shops and public buildings of Newcastle 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 beginners and experts alike.

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