Full Description

Several limekilns survive on Stanley Moor. The site formed part of a more extensive lime burning area that covered Grin Hill to the north and north-east, where lime-burning is known to have taken place from the mid-17th century, and possibly earlier. A recent survey of Stanley Moor recorded the survival of at least eight kilns with associated quarries. They represent some of the larger kilns from the site as a whole and may be relatively late in the sequence, probably post-dating 1837. (1)
