A geological walk for Earth Science Week along Piccadilly to Hyde Park Corner

This geological trail will take in the main building stones used at the western end of Piccadilly, as this street crosses the valley of the ‘lost’ River Tyburn. We will end the walk at Hyde Park Corner, traditionally the home of War Memorials commemorating the fallen of the UK and the Commonwealth.

A wealth of building stones are used in this area, from ancient Australian granites to Norwegian Marbles.
