Went out for a walk in Limehouse today with the new wild critter from my last trip in the woods. It was very cool and damp. Limehouse was a place where gypsum was taken from the beds of limewater shale. These mines were in various parts over the Niagara Escarpment in the 1860's-1870's. They also had kilns on site as there were few logging roads and this is one type.

A very nice intrigueing series Annie. I really like old things, as you know from my old engine series. I love historical things and local history of places. I also really like the arched rock bridge across the rapid stream, or was it a part of the wall that continued across the water? Did you cross it? I wonder who built it, and how old it is.

thanks gerald. the whole area for mining was built between 1850 through to the 1870's. I did go over the bridge as they are restoring the park and have walk ways through it. I had not been there for a while and they have completed quite a bit of the work. A railroad was built through the area in the 1850's to help with the mining operations. Here are two websites you might be interested in for the history!!!

Very nice and very interesting. Are there many wild animals in the woods like the one you managed to capture?
