In addition to the many regular visitors to the heritage area and those attending . events, we also welcomed some “special” visitors.
In August a camera team from a TV company filmed various aspect of the limeworks. There was a demonstration limestone burning and slaking of the quicklime produced. This was watched by people who had been alerted to the event by a combination of bush telegraph and electronic communication!
The team also recorded work done for the promotion of the use of lime and general points about the site.
A significant amount of time was spent in the limeworks area and the site in general. The limeworks may feature in a series of programmes to be broadcast in early spring 2012.
In September about 100 people visited the area on a Saturday afternoon. The people were attending an international conference on lime being held in Ironbridge.. A truly international group with representatives from all over the UK in addition to Scandanavia, India, USA and Mexico.
