BLF Publications

The Journal of the Building Limes Forum (formerly called Lime News) is published once a year. The Journal covers all aspects of the use of lime in building through articles about the latest research, historical reviews and case studies of new build and conservation projects by academic researchers, historians, specifiers and users.

The Journal is distributed to members only and members may buy back copies. You may get your own copy of the current Journal by joining the Forum and order back issues from the Members’ Pages. Members of the BLF Ireland, NFB and FIC may order back issues through their own forums.

Newsletter

A regular Newsletter is issued to Forum members. The Newsletter contains news about the Forum and events and views about current developments in the use and promotion of building limes. Members can read back issues on the Members’ Pages.
