    I had two words to look up today: ‘clunch’ and ‘scabious.’ You must live in a lovely climate, since I read that Scabious flowers don’t like cold, wet, hot, or humid conditions! Picky things, those!

    I’d never heard of a clunch pit, but now I see the rock formed about the same time the Great Western Sea was covering the entirety of the American midwest. The same soft-ish rock can be seen in Western Kansas, where remnants of the chalky seabed still are visible.

    • Well of course we do mostly have a lovely temperate climate, but these days you can’t tell what will happen next! Scabious are particularly common on the chalk downland around here. They don’t seem to be terribly fussy, but do often suffer from mildew by this point in the summer!
      Clunch from our pit was probably only used for local buildings, but others nearby provided material for some of the Cambridge colleges.
