Visit the special exhibition this summer

Dyer's Greenweed at the Priest's House, Easton on the Hill.

This summer the Priest’s House contains an exhibition entitled “Our Local Nature Reserves: a Wildlife Trusts exhibition”.

Three Wildlife Trusts come together to showcase what they do and describe their nature reserves nearest to Easton on the Hill.  These include nearby Collyweston Quarries, with a wealth of limestone-loving flora and fauna, Rutland Water, with information about the Osprey Project, and several local Lincolnshire reserves.

This is in addition to the standing exhibition on the local industry of mining and preparing collyweston slates.  A recent addition to this exhibition is a short video showing life down a working mine and how the slates are fashioned for use.

The exhibition is manned every Sunday in June, July and August between 2pm and 4.30pm, and entry is free to all.  Outside these times a key can be obtained from one of the nearby keyholders shown on the property notice board.
