New book plots history of Welsh quarrying

qiw-ah-coverfinalThe founder of the National Stone Centre  and Ex Director of the National Stone Centre, Ian Thomas, has written a new book on the "Quarrying Industry in Wales-a history."  The book was funded largely by the Aggregates Levy Fund in Wales.

The 224 page, full colour, bilingual book entitled ‘Quarrying industry in Wales – a history’ is a UK first, illustrating for a broad readership, the development, an industry vital to us all but invariably overlooked. Wales, usually associated with coal, steel and slate, all ably recorded, is still a key source of stone.

It has been well received and is available direct from The National Stone Centre for £19.95, including postage and packaging to UK (overseas postage at cost).  To read more details and place your order visit this link: Quarrying Industry in Wales
