SN0039 : Pwllgwaelod lime kiln, and burdock

taken 9 years ago, near to Bryn-Henllan, Pembrokeshire/Sir Benfro, Great Britain

Pwllgwaelod lime kiln, and burdock
Pwllgwaelod lime kiln, and burdock
The customary lime kiln for converting the limestone brought in by boat to quicklime to sweeten the land, in this case for use on Dinas Island.

In front is a dessicated burdock still covered with the clinging seedheads which inspired the invention of 'velcro' - the plant is biennal and therefore took two years to reach this stage of maturity last summer.
