On Saturday 27th August 2022 Helen Morgan, Member of Parliament for Shropshire North, visited the Llanymynech Limeworks and the Wharf Visitor Centre.
Together with Helen’s Constituency Support Officer, Alex Wagner, they toured the Limeworks, visiting the Stables Block where they learnt about the history of the site and viewed the Limeworks Model
Following the discussions in the Stables Block, everyone then moved on to look at the Hoffmann Kiln and Chimney, where Helen learnt about the processes used to produce quicklime in the kiln. After a short walk to the Tally House and the tunnels under the A483 to see the tramlines from the quarries, Helen then returned to the Stables Block before moving on to see the Wharf Visitor Centre
At the Wharf Visitor Centre, Helen saw the George Watson Buck, which is used give visitors a boat ride along the Montgomery canal. Sadly the boat was unable to leave its mooring due to the low water levels in the canal.
Helen then moved to the Exhibition housed at the rear of the Wharf Visitor Centre to finish off her visit.
