Ketton Architectural Stone and Masonry
The craft of the stone mason is one of the oldest, and has been subject to continuous development since man first dragged a few boulders together to form a shelter. It must have been quickly realised that by knocking off awkward angles, using another peice of stone as a hammer, boulders could be made to fit together better.
