The courts for the hundred of West Medine were held at ‘Westmedine le Pitte’, which has been identified the chalk pit at Shide.

It was then heated in kilns with coal to create quicklime, The quicklime was then hydrated by adding water in a lively chemical reaction, and this made the final product, hydrated lime, which could be bagged and transported. Everywhere the ground is cushioned with wet yellow and brown leaves, moss, ivy, sticks, feathers, angular chunks of chalk that I can scratch and come away with white under my the north of the village of Barkway and 4km south of Royston, near the top of the north-facing chalk scarp slopes. Only Wall Brown was missing in 2018 and there was a small decrease in the Vannesids and Large skipper took a tumble. Should this human involvement, human knowingness of the place, blunt that sense of beyond-known that I’m so hungry for and so often look for in the natural world? This might be a figure of speech, but with the discovery of the bones and the rumours both Ruth and the police have heard that the network of old chalk-mining tunnels under Norwich is home to a vast community of rough sleepers, the clues point in only one direction. Switchbacks lead me to two old kilns—shadowy rings of brick sunk into the ground and green with life, nearly erased.

Visitors will have different access needs and abilities and we want to provide some basic information about the reserve to help you decide whether this is a place you would like to visit and to help you plan. What have they to do with an Underground Project a megalomaniac architect wants to realize under the medieval town of Norwich? Whilst the mystery element might not be the run of the mill and riddled with its own idiosyncrasies as befitting the tenuous archaeological connection this case in complex enough to keep crime fans satisfied.On the other hand, the interpretive sign tells me that the reserve is carefully maintained by volunteers trimming ivy and pollarding trees. This is a confidential figure set between the Vendor and the Auctioneer and is a figure below which the Auctioneer cannot sell the property.

Listen for the sound of silence – well not quite, but this site is surprisingly quiet considering its close proximity to the County Town.More than any other, this is the crime fiction series that puts a spring in my step with its mixture of crime and comforting gentle humour against a backdrop of archaeological insights and a frequently fascinating police procedural element all driven by a cast who feel like old friends. This site is described by Natural England as "important for its excellent exposures of Totternhoe Stone", dating to the mid- Cenomanian stage of the Cretaceous period, around 100 million years ago. Its Episode 3 and I am here to serve you yet another sonic concoction of the finest new music from across the world. In places, the lichen Cladonia rangiformis has become abundant giving a greyish, crisp character to the turf.

I almost despair, but when I look closely at the fringes of the park I see inviting little paths into the green (despite the signs that say “This area not maintained by the caravan park, use at your own risk”). For parking we found it easiest to park up on Braybrooke road and walk down to the chalk pit from there.I’m hungry for the next curve, the new fold in the tapestry of green or rise in the topography of the reclaimed quarry. This former quarry exposes rocks of the Hog’s Back, and exhibits the separation of the folding Mesozoic rocks of the Weald from the Tertiary sediments of the London Basin. With ample parking, you can be certain of personal service and quality of products from every business. Then a rough sleeping woman disappears, and two of her male homeless friends are stabbed to death in the sleep.
