Wales Lime Mortar

Our Heritage Cardiff Black Lime Mortar is a bespoke to South Wales, which was predominantly used in Cardiff. During the industrial boom the famous black lime mortar became common sight in local welsh terrace houses, because ash from the local heavy industries were contaminating the sand. Local builders started to realise by add this ash to the lime mortar it would actually help reduce the setting times of the lime mortar, thus creating a hydraulic lime mortar.
