A limekiln probably built after 1846 and in production by 1878; disused by 1913.
A limekiln built in local rubble limestone, about 4 m high. There are two working recesses, each about two metres wide, with vertical sides but deeply corbelled over the working holes. An iron beam surves over the left working hole. At the right side of the right working recess is a hollow in the wall, perhaps a candle recess. The kiln stands against a bank with a short length of bank revetment to left and to right.
Included for historic interest as a well preserved small C19 rural limekiln.
