RSPB Consall Woods, Consall, Staffordshire ST9 0BE

Consall Woods is a wonderful place to explore. This once industrial valley has again taken on nature's mantle and is now a wonderfully rich mixture of wood pasture, pools and mature woodland, nestled alongside the River Churnet.nAgainst the canalised River Churnet stands a bank of four large lime kilns, dating from the early 19th Century. They were linked to a plateway built between 1815 and 1819 that ran from the Caldon Canal to north of Caverswall. After many years of neglect the kilns have been repaired and made safe. Three of the draw holes have been bricked up, however the right hand one remains open with a gate to limit access.
