One of the glories of Bath, England is that everything is made of Bath Stone, excavated locally since Roman times. It's one of the features that make it a World Heritage Site. There were all kinds of mines around town, which became pretty much derelict when tapped out. One of those mines, Ralph Allen Yard, is now the site of an interesting new green project by Hewitt Studios. (Ralph built his second fortune and this little pile out of Bath Stone mined on this site.)
