Bringing up the past

Old limekiln at Sandon

Good ol’ Heritage Open Day. Today is the day that many historic buildings that are usually closed to the public are opened up - and we can all see them. (Sadly, not as many buildings as one would hope are in fact opened up, but there you are…)

One of the most unusual structures people got to see this year was the two-hundred year-old limekiln (which is on private land) at Sandon. The Staffordshire Historic Buildings Trust is gradually restoring it, having got it listed.

Chris Wakeling (second from left) of the SHBT was an enthusiastic guide.
