Caption: Specimen of Stanton Buff Gritstone, Stanton Moor Quarry, Matlock, Derbyshire.
Description: Sample of Stanton Buff Gritstone from the building stone collection of the Edinburgh World Heritage Trust. The stone has a cut surface with an orange-buff colour. This specimen is of Carboniferous age. Stanton Moor stone has proved a popular stone for repairing the decayed masonry of the Edinburgh New Town. Edinburgh World Heritage Trust sample no. EWHT 36. The second New Town development in Edinburgh was jointly controlled by the City and the Governors of Heriot's Hospital, plus a syndicate of architects, builders and lawyers. The second New Town was planned as a northwards extension of the original New Town, which it resembles in many ways. The main difference is the topography, since the site is all on a downhill slope to the north.
