Pair of Limekilns
about 60 metres E of
12/151 Shinners Bridge House


Pair of attached disused limekilns. Circa early to mid C19. Limestone
rubble. Pair of attached lime-kilns built into bank with access at higher
level at rear for loading. There is a masonry joint on the front wall
between the two kilns as evidence that they are not coeval; the smaller
kiln to the right is likely to be the earlier. The front wall is flat and
has a parapet; 2 strong courses and 2 pointed arch swallows with a corbel
stone at the apex. The left-hand swallow is the larger and the lower
string-course does not continue over it. Each swallow is vaulted inside
with a kiln opening at the back. The deep circular kilns are open at the
top and tapered towards the bottom. Vegetation is growing on the top of
the kilns which are situated by a disused quarry.
