This factsheet provides an overview of the raw materials used to manufacture Natural Hydraulic Lime in Britain. It is one of a series on economically important minerals that are extracted in Britain and which are primarily intended to inform the land-use planning process. The factsheet differs from others in the series in that it covers, in necessary technical detail, a specialist product, which recently ceased being produced in Britain, as a result of the refusal of a planning application. There remains a small, but important market for Natural Hydraulic Lime, notably in the repair of historic buildings.
