Built after a lease to open a small limestone quarry was obtained by Robert Jones in 1879. The quarry is on the E side of the kilns.


A pair of rubble stone kilns set within a quarried-out depression. The kilns face W, have stone W and S walls, while the N and E sides are built into a bank (with quarried face exposed to the E). The segmental draw arches are of brick. The L-hand (N) kiln has a collapsed draw hole, while the draw arch of the R-hand kiln is almost completely infilled. The kilns are both brick lined, but infilled and partly collapsed.
