Building Stones of Birmingham – Town Hall to Cathedral Square
From the Town Hall in Victoria Square to the Cathedral Square, this is one of three trails exploring the Building Stones of Birmingham. We will see how some of Birmingham’s amazing buildings and the huge variety of stones used in their construction can take us on a journey all around the world and back into the depths of geological time. From the fossil remains of sea creatures, to ancient deserts, evidence of volcanoes and signs of tectonic earth movements, we will see how the stones that built the city provide a window into the deep history of the earth.
There are pdfs and a series of mobile-friendly web pages for each of the trails. These can all be found here
