Caption: Specimen of Stanton Moor Gritstone, Stanton Moor Quarry, Matlock, Derbyshire.
Description: Sample of Stanton Moor Gritstone from the building stone collection of the Edinburgh World Heritage Trust. The stone has a cut surface with a pale orange-grey buff colour. This specimen is of Carboniferous age. Stanton Moor stone is one of the most popular choices of replacement stone for repairs to historic masonry in Edinburgh. Edinburgh World Heritage Trust sample no. EWHT 98. In the repair of historic masonry the emphasis should be on the careful selection and specifying of replacement stone, following detailed assessment of the original material. In many cases of stone repair it is accepted that stone from the original source cannot be obtained, and even if it is available the properties of stone extracted today may differ from those in the past.
