Warstein - Suttrop

Suttrop has always been a village whose development was particularly influenced by the influential village nobility. This development has left its traces up to the present day and can still be partially traced in the village's appearance. Finds of animal bones and tools from early history prove that people already lived here in the Ice Age.

In the surrounding area there are limestone quarries and old iron ore mines. They are witnesses of a so-called "geological window", the Warstein saddle. An old tradition in Warstein and Suttrop was the burning of lime in small Kalköfen, which were fed by hand. In order to revive this tradition, the local history society built the Kalköfen between 2006 and 2008 next to the nature trail according to historical models, accompanied by a descriptive and informative documentation.
