By Lwblog @londonwalks

Walk of the Week: Urban Geology at Guildhall & Gresham Street @R_Siddall Every Sunday we’ll pluck just one walk from the vast London Walks repertoire and put it center stage.
You can check out the full schedule at www.walks.com
But if you only take one walking tour this week, why not make it…
Urban Geology at Guildhall & Gresham Street
A Millennium of London's Building Materials. Find out about the history and geology of London's building stones! London is built on clay, and although this is good for brick-making, there are no local stones of sufficient quality to build monumental and civic buildings fitting of a capital city. 
During Roman and Medieval times, Ragstone and Reigate Stone were imported from Kent, and following the Great Fire in the 17th Century, Portland Stone became London's iconic building stone and today stone is imported from all over the world. 
This walk, guided by a professional geologist, will look at the City of London's architectural history through its building stones. No previous knowledge of either geology or architecture is necessary.
Saturday 14th May 10:45am meet at Bank tube exit 1
A London Walk costs £10 – £8 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at www.walks.com.
