Trail was good, good esplanation of everything. Mind you though: after the rain it's a bit wet all over :)

This is an amazing site, the scale of it has to be seen to be believed. It is worth spending time exploring the whole site to get an insight into the work that went on here.

We had been told to look at the Hoffman Kiln as we were in the area. The map shows an interesting shape on the map... but we really didn't know what to expect. In an area of woodland, there are three different abandoned lime kilns,...More
