Limestone is one of this countries most important resources, Portland limestone has been used to build many British landmarks including Bucking Palace, the Cenotaph, many large houses and many town houses throughout the UK.

Limestone undergoes several useful reactions which produce many more products than the simple building material that we know it for.

Your task is to research these products and produce a leaflet giving details of where limestone comes from, how limestone is used in various ways, and any reactions and other uses of the rock.You should use your GCSE text books especially along with any other sources you can find.

There will be bonus marks for finding three reactions which produce the lime cycle (for example Limestone –> B –> C –> limestone again!
