About the Welsh Stone Forum
(Saesneg yn unig)
The Welsh Stone Forum was created in 2003 to promote awareness and knowledge of the use of natural stone in Wales. Membership of the forum is open to all (see details below) and currently includes those working in the fields of conservation, heritage, planning, geology, architecture and masonry.
Meetings of the Forum provide an opportunity to exchange knowledge and enhance expertise in all matters relating to natural stone. Current activities of the Forum include regular field meetings to study buildings and their constituent stone. These sessions provide an informal opportunity to discuss building stone issues from different conservation, geological planning and architectural perspectives.
