NT3960 : Through the shelterbelt

near to Tynehead, Midlothian, Great Britain

Through the shelterbelt.
Through the shelterbelt.
This is very high arable land, but the limestone soils add fertility to offset the climatic disadvantage. Lime rich soils are rare in Scotland, and the limestone around here was roasted to make lime (Calcium Oxide and Calcium Hydroxide) for neutralising sour, acid soils. Harvested and unplanted cornfields can be seen through the beech shelterbelt.
