Our last meeting was at Thimbleby near Horncastle at the end of July. Starting with a walk around the village to see the Mud and Stud cottages with thatched roofs, with a reminisce of Rodney Cousins' life work finding all of these buildings over twenty years ago.

The meeting was successful with discussions about our future events this upcoming year. We have many upcoming practical workshops for both members and non-members alike.

The Clayfest in June that our society took part in was highly successful, and from that we will take forth the use of natural building materials.

We have many projects and upcoming events including;

1) Heritage Opening Day(HODS).
              these will take place on Saturday and Sunday 9+10th September 2017 at the Heritage Skills                 Centre at Lincoln Castle. We will be building a mud-and-stud panel and a lancet arch using                 using clay blocks.

2)Construction Week.
               Tuesday-Thursday 3-5th October 2017 at Lincolnshire Showground.
               Members have the chance to teach school children whats fun about mud.
