The Llanymynech Community Project held its Limestone Launch on Sunday, 23 October 2005. Over 150 people gathered to attend various events, some led by the Shropshire Geological Society, such as walks and displays. There was a unique opportunity to see the inside of the Hoffman kiln as lighting had been rigged up for the day. The main event was the formal unveiling of the Athhony Lysycia sculpture by the entrance to the Heritage Area. The ceremony was carried out by two local primary school pupils.
