A Lime Slam has been arranged for Saturday 9th March at Corfe Castle, Dorset, hosted by The National Trust. The day will start with coffee at the National Trust tea room and then continue with a tour of the Castle to view historic mortars, mortar trials and recent lime-based repairs. This will be guided by Pam White, who has spent over 20 years researching the history of the Castle and the materials used in its construction. Lunch will be at a local inn, and the afternoon will comprise short presentations by members with ample time for discussion, and a break for afternoon tea.
The cost of the slam will be £15, including morning coffee, lunch and afternoon tea. There is an additional charge for entry to the Castle for the morning tour (free to NT members).
If you would like to attend, please contact the BLF for more detailed information.
