Stone Quarrying

(Jo Thomas)  Stone quarrying is the most important of Dorset’s industries, with a history that reaches back to Roman times.

The limestones from the Isles of Purback and Portland are amongst the most famous of all building stones, but elsewhere in the county there were once thousands of smaller quarries.

The book maps this industry.
