Up until the First World War this area had been mined for almost 2,000 years and is now a designated nature reserve. See the old stone tramways from the mining heyday, or simply take in the view across the Shropshire Plains.


A unique opportunity to discover our industrial past. As one of only 3 remaining Hoffman Kilns in the country, this is a nationally significant industrial heritage area. The site forms part of the limeworks landscape, from rock extraction on the high cliffs of Llanymynech Rocks, down the inclined plains through to the kilns and beyond, transporting the finished lime via the Montgomery Canal and Railway.


This area was a major centre of the lime industry until the beginning of the 1900's and retains a number of important features of industrial archaeology. The impressive 39 metre high chimney of the Hoffman Kiln dominates the site and provides visitors with a focal point to a varied site. Short circular walks (30 mins - 2 hrs) take you past impressive lime kilns, through woodland, along canals and disused railways, and across grazed pasture with views of Llanymynech Rocks, a Shropshire Wildlife Trust reserve.
