Monument record MDR11940 - Lime kiln with associated quarry, Perrydale Farm, Peak Forest

Type and Period (2)

Protected Status/Designation

  • None recorded

Full Description

A circular lime kiln with associated quarry, of probable 18th or 18th century date. Given the size of the quarry, the kiln was probably only fired on a few occasions. Used initially to create enough lime to burn off natural moorland vegetation at the time this area was enclosed. It was fired subsequently to produce lime to spread over the farm's fields to improve the pasture. None of these features are marked on any available historic maps. (1)
