Grit and grime to exotic cladding: the building st

Grit and grime to exotic cladding: the building st


_Without becoming a geologist, on this walk you can learn so much about what the city’s made of and why_

Why isn’t Leeds built entirely out of local sandstone and brick? Where did other building materials come from? What IS that silvery shimmering stone used for some shop fronts? What is ‘Marmo’? How can learning about these things help us to understand more about the development of the city?

_Meet on the steps of Leeds Museum, Millennium Square. _(What kind of stone is this?)
