Monument record MDR3615 - Lime Kiln and quarry pits, south of Stanedge Road, Bakewell
Type and Period (2)
- None recorded
Limekiln comprising a small but high circular mound edged with a ruined low drystone wall, with a central pot hollow. This lies within a small shallow quarry pit and there are a series of these to the south. To the south-west there are deeper pits cut into the steep slope, which may also be associated with the kiln. The kiln is shown on the 1879 Ordnance Survey map as a walled-out structure, the earliest available map that shows such details. It was probably disused by this date. The presence of a lime kiln indicates that the production of lime was one of the uses of the limestone from the quarry pits, but it is unclear if this was used for agricultural purposes or whether it was used for lime mortar and/or plaster in the town (3). Photographic record. (4).
