SS 32 SE

6/237 Lime Kiln to east
of beach acces with
access ramp


Lime kiln and access ramp. C19. Rubble. A large kiln built directly off the
rock at the back of the beach, and with an access ramp dropping steeply from the
cliff to the west. Roughly square on plan, rising up to 6 m from the rock to
flat grassed surface partly contained in parapet wall. A horizontal thin stone
course projects externally at the upper platform level. Segmental-headed opening
towards the west, and two openings on south face. On the east side a very steep
ramp descends from the adjoining cliff face, and contains one large plain arched
throughway. Another kiln lies to the west of the beach access (q.v.) and the
two items are important physical survivals and reminders of the earlier activity
on this north Devon coast.
