About this deal

An interpretive sign points out a pink band, which I find amid the layers of brush and geometric chalk face, a few centimeters’ blush of one hundred thousand of years of marine history. Dog bins are on site and we saw dog walkers, no signs of any dog fouling so it is obviously respected. You can see the rail tracks that took lime directly to the kilns, and the lime pits used to add water to the quicklime.

If Lime Kiln Close, the oldest part of the quarry, is shrouded in tree-mystery, East Pit, the neighboring part of the complex, is a miracle of hidden open space. Run by an ex-convict who has now found religion a subsequent disappearance raises the stakes and Nelson, Judy and Cloughie are forced to venture deeper. In England, where human presence has imbued the whole landscape for centuries, that dichotomy is useless (as it is everywhere, really—but it’s more obvious here). Falling rocks: do not climb the cliffs and keep away from the base of cliffs as there is a possibility of rocks falling. These are downloadable on site from the Information Pillar at the entrance and can also be accessed here.The who, how and why of the crimes twist and turn, speeding up as the squad moves closer to solving the case.

Hill End Chalk Pit is Registered Common Land and a Local Wildlife Site due to its chalk grassland habitat. Quarried from the 1800s until 1902 the site was used to supply chalk during the building of the embankment of the Beverley to Market Weighton railway line, which opened in 1865. One of the many things I love about Elly’s writing is that any comment on society is never stark but woven into the fabric of the story so that the issues at hand feel tangible as well as thought provoking. Scattered scrub areas around the pit slopes are dominated by privet with butterfly bush and cotoneaster.Many people, I suspect, zoom past without an inkling that anything is there, as I would have despite attending church less than a block away every week. Nestled in a narrow Wolds valley Kiplingcotes Chalk pit provides a haven for chalk-loving plant and animal species. We have also produced an I Spy Sheet and Map for you to print at home, or download to your phone and take to the site. 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. The warm and sheltered pit attracts 15 species of butterfly, including common blues and gatekeepers.

The chalk formed in the Upper Cretaceous era some 65-80 million years ago and marks the boundary between the London Basin to the north and the Wealden anticline (where the rocks buckled up into a wide shallow dome) to the south; this is one of the few places in the area where this important feature can be examined. Whenever I read a book from the Ruth Galloway series, it is never just about the crime at hand and this book is no different. I find an interpretive sign that tells me to look for the protected plants—wild cherry, wild licorice, moon carrot. A final scramble brings me up to the fence, the edge of the reserve, and in the fence is a narrow gap filled with light. As for the beautiful description of the Salt Marsh in all its isolating wonder, again I was not disappointed.This is a confidential figure set between the Vendor and the Auctioneer and is a figure below which the Auctioneer cannot sell the property. Later I cycle up the harrowingly narrow Lime Kiln Road toward a Google-Maps-red-pin promise of “View Point over Cambridge” and find instead the tucked-away official entrance to West Pit, complete with wooden gate and interpretive sign. Tranquil Shide Chalk Pit is a former industrial site which is now a haven for wildlife on the edge of the Isle for Wight’s county town. Notice says "dogs to be kept on lead at all times" but everyone ignores it, so put your dirtiest old clothes on as dogs allowed to roam free will jump up you. We manage Shide Chalk Pit for its rich natural habitat – the succession of bare chalk through to a chalk grassland plant community and tall scrub and trees.

The Chalkpit Cassette Club (CCC) is an exclusive and limited edition physical cassette tape imprint brought to you by Chalkpit Records. What have they to do with an Underground Project a megalomaniac architect wants to realize under the medieval town of Norwich? When Dr Ruth Galloway discovers they were recently buried, DCI Nelson has a murder inquiry on his hands.Photography, Videography, Social Media Content, IG Filter design, Music Videos, Showreels, Live Sessions and much more. Then a rough sleeping woman disappears, and two of her male homeless friends are stabbed to death in the sleep. This series has lost none of its lustre and with Griffith’s eye for forcing her characters to evolve (even those that are secondary to the Ruth/Nelson/Michelle love triangle) and the promise of more to come, readers would be advised to stick tight!
