This walk will look at London’s buildings through the stones used to construct them. We will concentrate on the ‘post-modernist architecture’ of the 1980s and 1990s when exotic stones were imported for decorative cladding from all over the world. We will see examples of spectacular granites formed in the process of building mountains and even stones that were formed by the impact of a meteorite 2 billion years ago. This Urban Geology walk is guided by the distinguished UCL Geologist Ruth Siddall.
