The Granite City

Our Story, Series 1 Episode 2 of 8

What do the Forth Rail Bridge, the London Cenotaph, the Scottish Parliament and the fountains of Trafalgar Square have in common? All were constructed in part from granite, extracted from the many quarries in Aberdeenshire.

Today in "Our Story" Mark Stephen hears stories of living and working with the stone which gives much of the North East its distinctive appearance, and led to Aberdeen being nicknamed "The Granite City".
