Full Description

Tumbledown limekiln but with much stonework remaining. (1). A stone-built limekiln with a circular charge hole c. two metres in diameter. Immediately below is a drystone wall facing, but there is no drawhole visible. There is a slight linear hollow leading south to the field wall and a large shallow quarry to the north. The limekiln is marked as 'old' on the 1880 Ordnance Survey map and had therefore gone out of use by that time. (4).
