Probably early C19 in origin but apparently rebuilt to some fair degree in the late C20 when they were perhaps previously in a ruined state.
Built of red sandstone rubble which is mostly in thin courses, but with some larger stones and with carefully constructed quoins and arches. Rectangular battered structure with double kiln. Semi-circular arched fireholes with central pier and part corbelled roofs. Drip above the arches with an apparently rebuilt parapet rising to the charge holes above.
Corbelled heads to the openings with the draught holes apparently blocked.
Included as a good example of a double limekiln that, despite some rebuilding, retains strong character.
