Lime Green: Visit and Tour
Date: Saturday, 25 November 2023
Location: Lime Green Products Ltd, Coates Kiln, Stretton Road, Much Wenlock, Shropshire TF13 6DG
Hosted by: Lime Green
About the event
Even though Simon and his brother started out slaking quicklime into lime putty in small batches (like many of us have done) the realization of getting building limes out to the mainstream market has only been achieved by careful planning and investment (of both time and money) in unique plant and equipment.
This means that Lime Green can produce both large and small runs of pre-mixed dry bagged mortars to a level of accuracy to be admired. Lime Green want to be able to appeal not only to the new build market but for the refurbishment of solid walled buildings to improve their technical performance by making it easy to use and convenient.
Programme for the day
We have organised two sessions for you to sign up to, either morning (10.30am until 12.30pm) or afternoon (1.30pm to 3.30pm) with a buffet lunch thrown in. You will be able to see how the production of ready mixed mortars happens, visit their quality control Laboratory and see a brand new machine that can mix fibres through lime mortar without them clumping!
This visit involves climbing up stairs (metal open stairs) to a height around 17m, so a good head for heights is necessary as are sturdy shoes and warm clothes (as this is mostly presented under covered but unheated space).
Tickets cost: £35.00 per person which includes the tour of the production site and a buffet lunch.
(Tickets close Tuesday, 21st November 2023 at noon)
