Portland stone quarry visit for new project

We visited Albion Stone quarry in Dorset to view a selection of Portland stone to use in a new architectural sculpture project for Highgate School with Architype architects. Portland stone varies from the pure and creamy white basebed to shelly fossil textured whitbed. We viewed the raw stone being cut from underground mines in Portland Bill with impressive cutting saws.
