Dodnor Rediscovered focuses on increasing the understanding and awareness of the industrial and natural heritage of a site and how they interact and shape one another. It is situated at Dodnor Creek and Dickson’s Copse Local Nature Reserve (LNR), and adjacent land on which a deteriorating historic cement kiln – locally known as “The Mummies Cave” stands. There is an extraordinary tale to tell about mills, cement, renewable power, and nature. Cement is more interesting than you think! Local people can learn new skills, preserve heritage and hekp Gift To Nature tell their story. In the LNR they are improving access, usage and volunteering. They will improve access from a National Cycleway to both the Medina Estuary and LNR and create a new public space for interpretation and rest. Much activity will take place on the adjacent site to save the historic structure now engulfed by vegetation, just as rampant but more destructive than any Mummy. They will stabilise this kiln, make it visible and put in place a management plan for the future.
