Site Description

Well-preserved example of a dated early limekiln with its associated quarries and trackways for coal and lime. The limekiln was in use before 1811. It has a single pot 2.5m in diameter and is 3m high. The pot is complete to the rim and is unlined. The back of the arch is corbelled to a single draw hole and the arch is to the east. The kiln is set into a quarried hollow with a revetted approach from the east, and a series of small quarry trenches runs back from the kiln to the north and west.
