Discover the project

The village of Combe Down, near Bath has been associated with stone mining since Roman times. It was in the 18th century however, with the pioneering technological advances introduced by Ralph Allen, that most of the mining activity took place. After his death, stone quarrying at Combe Down continued, but by the early 1900s the majority of the mining activity had ceased.
