Full Description

The 1st and 2nd edition 25" OS maps show a row of terrace houses at this approximate site, named Limekiln Row. (1, 2) By the time of the 3rd edition in the early 20th century the Row had been demolished, with the exception of the northernmost building. (3) The building at the northern end of the Codnorpark forge, adjoining Limekiln Row, was used as a water-powered corn mill serving the Butterley Co. farms at Codnor Park. The mill ceased to operate in 1966, when the forge closed down. (4)
