SX85NW DITTISHAM MILL CREEK
7/85 Limekiln Approximately 150
Metres South West of
Disused limekiln. Probably late C18 or early C19. Local stone rubble
including slate rubble.
The limekiln has a flat front and rounded corners; it is built into a band
at the rear for top loading. The walls are slightly battered. There is a
dripcourse at the front over the central swallow opening which has a
pointed arch with a long timber lintel at the apex. The swallow is
corbelled inside and at the back there is a square stoking hole with a
stone lintel. The kiln has been filled in from the top.
Attached to the right and left of the front there are low walls which are
probably the remains of a shelter for the lime.
This is one of two limekilns on the foreshore of this creek.
The other one is depicted in a water colour painting, dating 1792, by John
White Abbott (1763-1851) (qv) cottage store and limekiln immediately west
south west of Dinah's Side.
