636-1/10/121 Lime kiln, south-south-west of
junction of Albany Road and Wells


Lime kiln, built for the manufacture of Roman cement. Early
C19. Brick in English bond; the inside of the cone has been
relined with bricks several times.
Single stage, with battered walls; octagonal in plan, with
long and short facets alternating. Each short pierced at the
base by a round-arched drawhole, once topped probably by a
short canopy to give the workman feeding the fire protection
from the elements. Cone in the centre, to help the burnt
cement fall through the drawholes, partly diminished in
height. Kiln interior is an inverted, truncated cone.
