4th July

July's meeting was moved to 1.00pm so that we could meet up with Brian at Calke Abbey. He was leading a group to the lime kilns which was now a wild area for a photographic walk. This included a certain amount of history. 5 of our group as well as Brian attended alongside 3 others. the route to the lime kilns included a trip through the tunnel. We heard a lot about the kilns and realised that a large part of the estate had been removed to make the lime. Further on we arrived at a flooded area which was rich in wild orchids. We returned to our cars. The weather was cloudy with much sunshine and a strong wind which was less noticable in the limekiln area.

It was an instructive visit and I would like Brian to know how much I for one appreciated the walk.
