Red sandstone

Red, iron-stained sandstone predominates in the area around Kenilworth. The sands which form it were laid down by rivers about 290 million years ago, when Warwickshire was near the equator! The stone has been used to construct many buildings locally – notably Kenilworth Castle, the church at Stoneleigh and Coventry Cathedral. I’m planning to make a series of carvings from red sandstone, inspired by the trees and funghi of Crackley Woods and Stoneleigh.
