DescriptionA lime kiln is essentially a huge oven used to produce quicklime by heating limestone to temperatures of around 900°C. Once lit, these kilns were never extinguished and burnt continuously throughout their life, being constantly fuelled by labourers day and night. Period paintings of Lindisfarne depict the silhouette of the nearby castle outlined against an eerie warm glow created by these giant furnaces.
