Frosterley Marble 2024

Three walks start from Frosterley Station on the Weardale Railway, which look at some of the old quarrying remains of Frosterley and their effects on the landscape. Here a special type of limestone is found; this fossil-rich stone, known as Frosterley Marble, can be polished to a high shine, although technically, it is not a proper marble.
