Clipsham Stone






Location:  Quarried at Clipsham Quarry in Rutland, Lincolnshire. 

Geology:  These deposits occur in the Inferior Oolite of the Jurassic system.  This Limestone was probably deposited in a moderately sub-tropical sea, where changes were frequent, making its texture liable to a certain amount of variation.

Colour:  When dry, the colour of Clipsham Stone may vary between pale cream and buff.  The ground colour of the stone from the Old Quarry is buff and there are small spots or patches of a light brown colour.
