A CHANCE to visit the historic Tardebigge lime kilns is on offer for those wanting to explore the canal.
The Worcester, Birmingham and Droitwich Canals Society is currently restoring the site where quicklime was made more than a hundred years ago.
The kilns, which sit next to the canal, would have used the waterways to transport the limestone away before proper roads existed.
On Saturday, January 18 residents are invited to visit the site for free based at the New Wharf off the Alcester Road.
It will form part of a special open day which will also allow people to explore the drained lock chamber while it undergoes £75,000 worth of maintenance work thanks to the Canal and River Trust.
Visit www.canalrivertrust.org.uk and www.wbdcs.org.uk for more information and to book a place.
