The Limekiln Observatory is a modern take on an old building which used to house the kiln when the site was a brick and lime works at the end of the Victorian era.

Now the state-of-the-art building, which boasts glass on three sides and incorporates a composting toilet, is the venue for bird watching and weddings alike. It’s a must-see when you visit the centre.

The Limestone Pavilion has an interactive learning zone indoors and is built complete with a climbing wall on one of the exterior walls. The structure was erected using hempcrete which allows the wall to breathe.
