Bath Stone

A natural stone with provenance

A British stone that has shaped history

Bath Stone is a honey-coloured oolitic limestone that dates back around 160 million years to the Jurassic period. Bath Stone was first used by the Romans for the construction of many buildings during the occupation of Bath, including the famous Bath Spas. The Georgian period transformed Bath's architecture led by three local entreprenuers, one of which was Ralph Allen, the cities former Mayor. He was fundamental in the reform of the postal service and used his profits to buy local bath stone mines; Ralph Allen commissioned the build of Prior Park and worked with architects John Wood the Elder and Younger to develop much of the Georgian city using Bath Stone. Today, Bath is the only UK city to be designated a World Heritage Site.
