Self healing at Halkyn Lime Kilns

You know how lovely  it is when somebody devotes their lives to a cause and when in they are eventually in need themselves they get overwhelming help and support

Well, it’s the same for the lime kilns at Halkyn.

For decades these illustrious kilns – wedged onto the side of a hill have been firing lime which has gone into the great buildings which surround us.

Now dis-used they form a significant part of our industrial landscape and it is quite just and right that they are being conserved as a critical part of our built heritage.

How lovely it is to see them being cared for by our skilled tradesmen – giving the kilns a bit of its own medicine lime mortar pointing

Grosvenor were principal contractors on the site and organised a complex conservation programme for the kilns.
