The grounds of the Centre boasts a wonderful site, also home to a wondeful sculpture, covered in lots of fossils, known as Frosterley Marble. The fossils form again more than 320 million years and beautifully decorate. You will find it has been used further afield in architecture if you look at Columns In Durham Cathedral and Auckland Castle Chapel.
