Full Description

Large lime kiln and adjacent limestone quarry. Largely collapsed and grassed over, but easily recognisable. The draw tunnel has collapsed, and the furnace chamber has largely filled-in, though some lining bricks are scattered over the site. (1). Recorded on the 1880 Ordnance Survey map as a limekiln. Therefore still in use in this date. (3)
