Monument record MDR11956 - Limekiln and quarry, Perryfoot Farm, Peak Forest

Type and Period (2)

Protected Status/Designation

  • None recorded

Full Description

A circular limekiln and associated quarry, with emptying hollow and spoil heap of probable late 18th/ early 18th century date. As the load of the kiln was sorted to achieve best quality lime, free of slag and coke it is probable that the lime from the kiln was produced on an industrial scale. It may well have been an abortive lime-producing complex where it was the intention to create further quarries and kilns. (1)
