Osmington Oolite, Dorset

2018-6-1 · The oolitic limestone is medium grained and, unlike Portland Stone, is warm, yellowish-brown in colour. The ooids are in a matrix of sparite and some micrite. It has been used in Abbotsbury. The ancient building, St. Catherine''s Chapel, on a very exposed position, shows that it wears well.
