Continuing my photographic review of the year following on from Part 1 …
July saw the start of working on the Staffordshire Strategic Stone Study which has seen me spend the summer traversing the county looking at various building stones. This has included visits to two quarries that have provided much of Staffordshire’s building stone, Grinshill in Shropshire and Hollington in Staffordshire.
… and an evening field trip to Ossum’s Hill to see a new exposure of the bioclastic Carboniferous Limestone.
Finally, in November I was involved in some site clearance along the Hamps and Manifold Geotrail.
I’ve still got one major trip to do this month, more details in the New Year.
I’m also considering a ‘deskcrop365’ project with a new rock picture every day. If it happens then it will most likely appear on flickr and/or posterous.
It just remains for me to thank you for reading in 2009 and I hope to see you again in 2010.
Happy New Year
