SK5042 : Wall on Main Street, Strelley

taken 10 years ago, near to Bilborough, Nottingham, Great Britain

Wall on Main Street, Strelley
Wall on Main Street, Strelley
This wall, bounding the Strelley Hall grounds, is constructed of Bulwell Stone, a local very impure, coarse grained and flaggy magnesium limestone. It is too soft for most aggregate purposes, but serves as a good ornamental building and rockery stone. This photograph shows clearly the effects of weather and ivy growth on the soft stone over a couple of hundred years.
Bulwell Stone was used extensively in the past as a local building stone. Walk round the older parts of Nottingham and nearly every front garden or yard is enclosed by a Bulwell Stone wall. Notable instances of its use include SK7053 : Southwell Minster, TL5480 : Ely Cathedral and the lower courses of the Houses of Parliament.
