Listing Text

CHUDLEIGH ROCK ROAD, Chudleigh
SX 87 NE
4/79 Lime kilns about 40 metres south
- east of Glen Cottage

II

Limekilns. Probably mid/late C19. Local grey limestone rubble. The kilns are sited
in Palace Quarry. A large rectangular block of limestone rubble with a track leading
on to the top of the block. Each of the 3 exposed sides of the block has a swallow
with a rounded arch, the entrance on the west side leads into a long tunnel with
subsidiary niches on the side walls. It is not entirely clear whether this structure
is one or several kilns; the top is very overgrown but one, at least, is in working
order.
An impressive structure and clearly part of a large scale enterprise.
