Inside The Lime Kilns

  • Description

    Once upon a time, these stony corridors would have been a hellish environment of burning limestone. Each of the entrances leads to a large concave space which would have been packed with coal, creating a superheated calcite reaction. The resultant material was important for its use as building mortar in addition to being widely employed in agriculture as an effective fertiliser.
