Discover everything you ever wanted to know about Lime Kilns (and some things you didn't) by taking part in our one off lime kiln build and burn!
Working with Mark Womersley, expert in historic buildings, on this second day of activity, you will mix traditional hot lime mortar. Removing the burnt lime from the kilns you will mix it with sand from the same sources Samuel Oldknow used. Then using your mortar, you will have a go at building a wall.
You can book on both days, or just on this one.
We will provide personal protective equipment but we ask that you wear safety boots, or at the very least, sturdy walking boots. Book your place here.
