Lime kilns. Early C19. Rock-faced sandstone ashlar with brick arched
and spandrels lining furnaces. Massive retaining wall (approximately
12m high x 50m) divided into 6 bays by battered sections of stonework;
entrances to each bay round-arched (approximately 2m high) on impost
bands; dentilled band over each arch set under stonework. The forge
forms part of a group at the head of the Caldon Canal, including tram-
way terminus (q.v.), warehouse (q.v.) and bridge (q.v.). The canal
was built circa 1779 to carry limestone from Caldon Low, the stone
being brought down the steep incline to the canal head by tramway.
