Full Description

this is a fine example of a lime kiln. It is drystone wall retained on the downslope side, the wall is still standing to nearly its original height. At the centre of this side is a drawing hole, with a short passage leading to the internal base of the kiln. The kiln was loaded from the top and emptied from the lane below the kiln. The lime from the kiln was presumably used on the fields in the immediate vicinity and on the fields below in the valley bottom. (1)
