- Limekilns at ST 066 174
- II
Limekilns. Probably early C19. Local stone rubble with some brick. Row of 3
adjacent limekins built across and into the front of a steep south-east facing
hillslope. All are raked out from the front. All have segmental-headed outer
arches to the raking out holes are blocked to the circular brick-lined kiln vats.
The right end kiln may be secondary since its front is set at a slightly different angle and, unlike the others, the vault of the raking chamber is brick.
This is one of a group of limekilns close to the Westleigh Quarry which still
produces limestone.
