6/236 Lime Kiln to west of
beach access


Double lime kiln. C19. Rubble. Two kilns, each brought forward to roughly
cylindrical frontage joined by flat segmental pointed arch, now blocked. January
1985 and with a second similar but open arch to the right, containing inner rough
stone vault and flat arch to hearth. The kilns are built in to the cliff face
and have a flat upper surface part occupied by unsuitable C20 structure. The
whole is set on a stone sett platform on retaining wall which rises from the
back of the beach. Another kiln lies to the east of the beach access (q.v.),
and the two items are important physical survivals and reminded of the earlier
activity on this north Devon coast.
