Full Description

A quarry beside the High Peak Trail east of Minninglow Siding contains a disused lime kiln, visible from the Trail. The former pie kiln is covered by grass, although some stonework is visible, as are twin draw tunnels. The Ordnance Survey map of 1883 marks this as still in use. (1) The Minninglow Kiln is the only rectangular kiln to be found in an industrial quarry in Derbyshire. It is relatively small and the evidence suggests that it may have had a central bank thus creating two eyes. (2)
