About this book

This fascinating book is an introduction to understanding how stone is used in buildings, how to identify the stone, nature of stone weathering, mapping stone decay, and the current advice on stone repair in buildings.

Countless generations have used stone to create shelter, symbols and monuments, hewn from the ground, carefully selected, shaped and carved with an evolved understanding of geology, properties and characteristics, each stone representing a distinctive sense of place. However, over the last century we have lost much of that instinctive understanding of how best to use natural stone. As a result our rich masonry heritage has not been cared for as well as it deserves and local resources have been ignored in favour of imported stone.

Stone by Stone is based on the experience of academic research, practical testing and live restoration projects and is intended to disseminate good practice and lessons learnt over the last 15 years.
