Type and Period (2)
Lime kiln in extensive complex of chalk pits disused for about 50 years. In good condition - the pot filled with debris but the chamber below ground largely clear and accessible. At least two ventilation tunnels, one unusually large. Of distinctive E Anglian pattern with annular chamber into which burnt lime was drawn through four chutes. Larger than most and of substantial construction. Probably late C18/early C19 though a date stone above chamber shows the date 1724 (S1). Of clear national importance (S2).
