Cambridge has long enjoyed a famous and historical relationship with indigenous stones beginning in the 15th century with the Lincolnshire Oolite’s including Ketton stone, Clipsham stone and Weldon stone.
Yorkshire Magnesium limestone was drafted in for developing Kings College between 1446-61. The 18th century brought an influx of Portland stone to Cambridge which was briefly favoured to the creamy Lincolnshire oolite’s and was shipped from the south-coast as by this time shipping had improved greatly.
By the 19th century railway brought Bath stone and Ancaster stone into the city favoured by Victorian builders and restorers.
