Full Description

Minninglow Lime Kiln, north of Gallowlow Lane, Ballidon, a 19th century facility. Peak Park photographic record. (1-3) Drystone, roughly circular, structure constructed from limestone blocks. The kiln is built backing onto an excavated hollow, which is open to the north. The kiln is approximately 5m high and 7m in diameter. The opening to the kiln is still apparent on the north facing side, although the interior is infilled with rubble. Presumably the flue was directly above the centre of the kiln, but has now been demolished to ground level, which has left a depression approximately two metres deep in the centre of the kiln. (4-7) Well preserved pit-type quarry with ramp down the working floor. There was former rail access nearby. The kiln's radial flues and entrance tunnel are visible.
