Site Description

Substantial remains of a limekiln together with its associated charging ramps and quarry setting. The kiln has 2 drawing arches facing the front and serving a single bowl, roughly 12m across. A large stone buttress has been built between the fron arches, probably soon after the kiln's original construction. A charging ramp cruves up around the north of the kiln and a track exits towards the Chepstow-Tintern road at the south west.
