I have a budding geologist and potential historians in our house. I have known about the geologist for some time, with Monkeys fascination with gems, fossils and stones! But, on our last trip to Derbyshire at Easter, I realised that most of our outings were based around both these interests.
The National Stone Centre in Middleton is one of Monkey’s favourite places to go, where we pan for gems in the pool and spend hours in the quarry searching for fossils. They even have a dry stonewall, built with different stone from around the UK which is quite interesting to see.
