Many of Britain's finest houses are built of stone. It has always been the material of choice for building houses or other buildings, thanks to its durability and relatively easy availability. Traditionally, local stone has been used, which has given whole regions a recognisable look - the honeypot Cotswold villages, for example.
Bath stone, Portland stone, limestone and granite are examples of the different types of stone used.
