Visit to the Lime Kilns of Rey

On July 9th 17 of us met at the Sans Sou… ci restaurant at Montchaton for a tasty lunch and convivial company. Afterwards, most of us continued on to the museum at Regneville. We were greeted by a charming lady who gave us an English guide to help us on our way.

The museum is well presented and provides an interesting insight into not only the process of obtaining lime from limestone and
the use of its by products, but also the history of fishing in Regneville.

The lime kilns themselves are impressive in size and structure. Indeed, my brother in law, who is not easily impressed, was very enthusiastic about the whole thing and took pictures galore!

 

Everyone who came along enjoyed themselves; certainly worth a visit.
