Lime kiln approx. 100m south-east of
High Chapel (Chapel not included)


Lime kiln. Probably later C19, and probably by a professional
mason. Large coursed blocks of sandstone rubble, with quoins.
Square plan, built against slope. Approx. 2.6 metres high,
battered, and stepped back slightly above the draw hole, which
is 1.75 metres high and slightly tapered. Some coping stones
missing. INTERIOR: round-ended draw hole with roof of 3 large
stone slabs. Good example of its type, relatively well
preserved; very similar to lime kiln approx. 100m south-west
of High Croft (qv). Conspicuous feature of the landscape at
this point in Dentdale.
