The dreamy spires of Oxford and many of the University buildings as well as the homes that people live in in the Oxford area and nearby Cotswold villages are built from limestone from the Jurassic period (yes that is just like Jurassic Park) that is 206 – 144 million years ago give or take a few years. The limestone has a honey colour, although I have noted that some people call it a yellowish white, it comes from a shallow sea bed that ran from Lincolnshire all the way to Dorset and covered much of the Oxford area and is known as Olithic limestone and is generally graded into inferior and limestone no prizes for guessing which many of the buildings were built from. The limestone or calcium carbonate composition dissolves with acid rain which we have quite a lot of and pollutants which we also have quite a lot of and it is a major problem with many of the old buildings in Oxford . This together with unsympathetic repairs on many of the older properties for those wanting a more detailed view search on monitoring moisture ratings under deterioration of historic limestone and walls in Oxford from Oxford Universities School for Geography and the Environment.
