Early Lime Works in the Rugby Area - A Brief History (John P H Frearson)

This book started as an introduction to the author's study of the history of the Rugby Portland Cement Company which gave information on some of the other early lime producers in the Rugby area. Although none were as long lasting as Rugby Cement, they had interesting stories to tell. Hopefully this booklet will provide an insight into the development of this important industry between the 18th Century and the early 20th Century.
