Picture Of The Day : Stoned

I took this picture in Sheffield on Monday. It is the wall of Sheffield City Hall and, according to the reference books, it is Stancliffe Darley Dale stone. It is mined in North Derbyshire and therefore didn't have to travel far when, in 1932 it was used to build the new City Hall. The same type of stone was used for many municipal buildings including Leeds Town Hall and St George's Hall in Liverpool.
