    Really well pitched. Not too technical but just enough information for me to understand. Really interesting and the visual aids really helped to understand the issues and help make decisions.

    Really interesting explanations of considerations that have to be taken into account when choosing the correct mix of lime, particularly exposure to weather and orientation of elevation. Definitely keen to learn more about lime and traditional buildings.
