Blue Lias dated back to the early Jurassic period, and is 195-205 million years old.  It is made from layers of compressed shale and limestone and is renowned for its ammonite fossils.  The beautifulblue-grey colour occurs as a result of its high iron contect, enclosed for the most part in pyrite crystals.  It also features some brown banding which weathers to a pale yellow/grey.

Blue Lias has been used extensivley throughout the South West up as far as Warwickshire.  Its strength and durability make it an excellent building material.
