Full Description

Two circular limekilns, adjacent to a number of shallow stone pits. Both are approximately 0.6m high. Traces of coke, coal and burnt stone can be found in both kilns. (1). Lime kilns are not shown at this site on the 1880 Ordnance Survey map. It seems likely that these features are in fact lead mining pits, part of Mycross Vein, and that they were incorrectly identified in the survey of 1991. (2)
