Caption: Specimen of Hayfield sandstone from Hayfield Quarry, Hayfield, Derbyshire.
Description: Sample of Hayfield sandstone from the building stone collection of the Edinburgh World Heritage Trust. The stone has a cut surface with a variable pale orange-buff colour. This sample is part of a collection of currently available sandstones used to repair decayed masonry in Edinburgh. Edinburgh World Heritage Trust sample no. EWHT 67. In the selection of stone for repairs if the source of the original stone can be identified and the quarry is active it should be noted that the properties of the stone currently being extracted may differ from the original. Where the origin of a stone cannot be established it is necessary to identify an alternative stone that not only matches the original, but is appropriate for the circumstances.
