Limekiln in coursed, tooled blue lias stone. Large scale, built into bank with three-sided, near-square plan, the E and W faces pierced by tall kiln-eyes, to nearly full height; the kiln-eyes are triangular above straight lower jambs and recede within to a small ground-level openings into main crucible. Main crucible is circular, tapering outwards from base to top and top platform is grassed with low parapet walls surviving on W and S sides.

A lime-kiln of unusual scale and quality, and one of the very few with the crucible still left open.
