London Building Stones Field Trip 

Monday 26 November 12.45

Join Bob Leppard on this trip around St James.  Numbers are limited, but the tour is very memorable!

Here’s what one previous delegate had to say:

“Not only was the course extremely informative geologically but it had the added bonus of Bob’s insights into the Georgian and Victorian history and the architecture of St James’s, London.  There were many interesting anecdotes about Lobb’s, shoemakers to many famous people including George Bernard Shaw, and where the first bowler hats were made for a Mr. Cope. Berry Brothers wine merchants which was once a grocers and where people went to get weighed in the absence of personal bathroom scales circa 1698, and the building which was the Texas Embassy when Texas was a sovereign state (1836-1846).   Particularly interesting was Schomberg House once resided in by Gainsborough.  On the top of this building once stood the “celestial bedroom” but to find out more you need to go on the trip.”
