Llanymynech Discovery Day 12th May 2007
Held from 1pm to 5pm at the Llanynmynech Wharf Visitor Centre & Heritage Area.
The event was well supported and in spite of the poor weather forecast, a steady stream of visitors arrived to sample the pleasures of the area. All parking spaces in the village were filled to capacity.
The narrow boat, George Watson Buck was kept busy throughout the afternoon carrying visitors along this restored section of the Montgomery Canal.
The banks of the canal have now re-established their natural cover .
The Lime Kiln chimney stands proud above the trees as you pass along the canal.
As you left the wharf to visit the Lime Kins, you passed the stands of the organisations who are responsible for the re-generation of the canal and its adjacent Heritage Area.
A group of traditional dancers performed for the visitors.
Accompanied by traditional musicians.
A new roof to the original design now covers the Lime Kiln as seen here by the chimney.
The Warren Continuous Lime Kiln met with considerable interest as the visitors walked round the restored structure and its displays.
