Although the Silver and Stone Shop in Castleton is new to us, it does have its own sense of place which is entwined with Castleon’s history.
The odd-shaped building was probably built in the mid-1800s and over the years has been home to a number of businesses.
The building next door was a gift shop/museum in the past and is part of the Blue John Tradition.
John Tym who ran the business was a “spar manufacturer”, the term used for those who worked Blue John stone. On his travels he would collect various natural history specimens and these were included in his Spar Marble Museum.
He is also remembered for creating a window from 250 Blue John Pieces, measuring 6ft x 3ft, probably in the workshop here. It took him 7 years to complete.
He died in 1901 aged 72.
