Lime Kilns

  • Description

    Lindisfarne had a large limeburning industry and the kilns, which were built in 1860, are among the most complex in Northumberland. There are still some">traces of the jetties by which the coal was imported and the lime exported close by the at the foot of the crags. Lime was quarried on the island and the remains of the wagonway between the quarries and the kilns makes for a pleasant walk.
