1984 STUDY

A study of limestone quarrying at Llanymynech

In 1984, Harvey Kynaston produced the above study. The work is a rich source of information in two ways. Firstly, Harvey shares with us the results of his research into many aspects of the local limestone industry. Secondly his comments and photos give an insight into the changes which have taken place from 1984 to the present.

The only additions to Harvey’s original text have been given in italics. There may well be parts of the original work which could be rewritten using more recently acquired knowledge but the original study stands as a gem of information on our local history.
