Museum of Bath Stone

Open Day at the Museum of Bath Stone

The Museum of Bath Stone is founded upon the legacy of a £154 million first-of-its-kind major engineering project, which brought safety to a village at risk of collapse. 82% of the ground beneath Combe Down was removed during excessive bath stone quarrying in the Georgian era; where Ralph Allen’s vision carved much of the city we see today.

The museum is currently under development and is opening specially for B&NES Museums Week. Visitors will discover details of the Combe Down Stone Mines Stabilisation Project and have the opportunity to share their ideas for the museum’s future.

10am-4pm. All ages welcome.
