There is an old lime kiln near my home. I do not know who owned it but no lime was burned in it with ages. There is also a place near it were option was made long ago. They used draw clay up the mountains to make gardens. Mrs Carty used to wave blankets and linen and other clothes. Every house had its own spinning wheel and some have them yet but the people do not know how to use them. There is an old quern in the chapel of New Quay.
