5/36 Limekilns at ST 059 172
- II
Limekilns. Probably early C19. Stone rubble with brick dressings. Set of 3
limekilns built against a steep south-east facing hillslope. To right an oblong
block projects forward and it contains 2 kilns each raked out from the sides. To
left is another built into the hillslope and it is raked out from the front. All
have tall outer arches with segmental head and it steps down and inwards in a series of three similar arches to the raking out hole which goes through to a circular brick kiln vat. They could be loaded from the top of the slope.
This is one of a group of limekilns close to the Westleigh Quarry which still
produces limestone.
