Lime kiln. Probably 1840s, and probably by professional mason.

into slope. Approx. 3.8 metres high, with battered front and
sides, and with 2 slightly stepped back tiers above the draw
hole. Rectangular draw hole opening 1.25 metres high. Coping

type; very similar to lime kiln approx. 100m south-east of
