The audience were amazed to hear that Cumbria had around 1500 lime kilns at one time and 1,100 of them still remain. Graham explained that the Greeks started burning limestone to form lime mortar but it was the Romans who first did so in Britain. Lime mortar was used in many buildings and locally at Cartmel Priory.

Dr Turnbull gave a fascinating talk on how changes in the road network of Westmoreland had led to changes in the character of the roads themselves, the buildings located along the roads and the services offered to travelers. She illustrated this with maps and photographs and two case studies -the routes from the Lancashire border to Levens and from Levens to Ulverston.
