THE STONEMASON’s  story of the building of Britain  is part archaeological history and yet a deeply personal insight into an ancient craft.  In his thirty-five year career ANDREW ZIMINSKI has worked on many of our greatest monuments. From Neolithic monoliths to Roman baths and temples; from the tower of Salisbury Cathedral to the engine houses, mills and aqueducts of the Industrial Revolution up to the present day.  This is a personal history of how Britain was built – from the inside out and takes us on an unforgettable journey by river, road and sea with a   new vision of our island history.

ANDREW ZIMINSKI is a stonemason living and working in what was ancient Wessex.  He has three decades of hands-on experience with the tangible history of this country. He has used his skills to create a Stonehenge megalith as well as the restoration of the Roman ruins in Bath and the dome of St.Paul’s in London.  He is as happy to work on a humble medieval country church as he is on Salisbury Cathedral
