Devonshire Marbles: their geology, history and uses, Volume 2: Recognising the marbles

by Gordon Walkden

Volume 2: Recognising the marbles

This is a combined research volume and comprehensive introduction to what is probably Britain’s most spectacular and diverse decorative marble, yet the least well-known. Many people are familiar with Purbeck Marble and some will know of Ashford Black Marble from Derbyshire and the specimen marble items that flowed from that, but few have heard of Devonshire Petitor, Ashburton or Ogwell marble, or of the much more unusual Rose Red Radford, once used to make a massive stone-built valentine fireplace. Yet these are iconic British marbles spread not only amongst an amazing number and diversity of UK and worldwide buildings, they were also the basis for a specimen marble ornament industry that rivalled the Derbyshire one.
