About this book

This book features four self-guided walks through the city centre of Manchester, showing the geological origins of the building stones used around the city.

"[...] The audience for this guide will be based mainly in north-west England. But it will be a useful reference for anyone producing a guidebook to building stones or otherwise. The first edition was a trailblazer, the first of its kind. Now, the third edition has set the standard for future guides. I am sure Fred and Morven would be delighted."
– Stephen K. Donovan, Naturalis Biodiversity Center, Leiden, The Netherlands, Geological Journal, Volume 51 (2016)
