Vandals strike again at the Llanymynech Heritage Area

It is a sad fact that vandalism has been an issue at the Llanymynech Limeworks for some time.  The team of volunteers give up their own time to ensure that the area is kept in as good a condition as possible for our visitors, but a few idiots seem determined to ruin the site for everyone!

Please report any instances of vandalism that you see to the Shropshire Constabulary
