WALKING WITH DINOSAURS IN POUNDBURY
'Walking with Dinosaurs in Poundbury', by Eve Stephens, is a sixteen page
booklet, presented as a colourfully illustrated walk around the Royal village. The
book explains the geological source of the stone used for many of the buildings, especially the fossil packed Jurassic rocks. The highly prized
Bath Stone and Ham Stone of the Brownsword Hall is described and its source
explained. There is a story, told by a senior stone mason, of the devastating error he made when ordering the carved corners of the Belvedere, a gift to the community by H.R.H. Prince Charles. The book was written to enrich the Poundbury experience by inhabitants and visitors alike.
You can buy the booklet in the local shops in the village and the Tourist
Office in Dorchester. To buy directly from the author phone 01305 259175
The booklets cost £3.50 including postage and packing (for the U.K.)
