Join The Bishop’s Palace for a fascinating talk on the stones used to build the Palace.

Acclaimed geologists Doug Robinson, former Bristol University lecturer, and Chris King, former professor at Keele University and recipient of the Geological Society’s ‘Distinguished Service Award’, present a talk about the ancient history of the stones which were used to build The Bishop’s Palace.

The natural stone in the Palace buildings, and the well pools arising in the gardens, tell a fascinating geological history of the local area. Amazingly, all the rock types found in the local area can be seen here at the Palace!  Expect fascinating facts about the stones, that cover an astonishing age range of 200 million years.
