15/10001 Set of three limekilns
approximately 350 metres
south-east of The Cliff house


Limekilns. 1830s and later. Structures in hand-made red brick set in the
ground, partly earth covered. Set of three single kilns, 4 to 10 metres
apart in the quarry bottom, with flue entrances facing west into a
sheltered U-shaped hollow. Each kiln consists of a brick-built open-topped
bowl-shaped 'pot' 3 metres in diameter at the mouth, and approximately 3
metres deep, with a square-ended round-arched draw-tunnel approximately 1.5
metres high and up to 2.5 metres deep, at the back of which is a recessed
segmental-arched draw-hole beneath a segmental relieving arch. The southern
kiln is similar but also has sections of brick facing either side of the
tunnel entrance, and a small triangular-headed opening c. 30cm high near
the inner end of the tunnel. The kilns were probably the intermittent type.
and form an interesting comparison with the later and larger continuous
kilns in the neighbouring quarry to the west (qv). Together, the kilns in
these adjacent chalk quarries provide a good illustration of developments
in the scale and technology of the industry. They are also notable as the
only known examples of this type of kiln surviving in Lincolnshire and
Humberside, from the many that were known to have been operating in the
region last century.
