Disused lime kiln on Bradwell Moor. Has a large furnace chamber sunk into the ground at the head of a long lead rake. No sign of a draw tunnel. Much of the furnace lining remains in situ. (1)
Described by Howard White (minerals officer, PPJPB) as having a small quarry at one end, the kiln is in the middle and a ramp leads out to the east. It is suggested it needs some conservation. (2)
