An educational centre wants to build a better future with a new exhibition explaining the history of stone.

The National Stone Centre, in Middleton–by–Wirksworth, has will launch its Building Britain exhibition on this Sunday (May 4).

Albert Benghiat, chief executive of the centre, said: “It’s everything from what we use rocks for to how we get them out of the ground. Then we have got displays on topical things, for example fracking.”
