Friends of Swaledale Museum talk

Friends of Swaledale Museum talk David Johnson, ‘Lime kilns in Swaledale & Arkengarthdale: the where, the when and the what for?’

Lime burning in the Dales has a proven history stretching back over 800 years, and the northern dales have remains of nearly 250 kilns of various types and periods. This illustrated talk considers where and over what length of time lime kilns were built, who built them, and the uses lime was put to.

Roger Preston’s dramatic photographs of local lime kilns will be on display in the Museum, and are the inspiration for inviting David to give this talk.
