Tyne and Wear HER(1002): Marsden Lime Kilns

  • Description

    "A large nineteenth century range of industrial kilns, basically of two types. Seven complete and one semi-complete kilns are housed within a massive stone battery, having a total of 15 draw arches, each arch having 2 or 3 eyes. To the south of the range stand two detached circular sectioned brick built kilns wrapped about with iron bands. In front of the kilns stands the remains of a brick and concrete loading platform dating from the 1950s from which the lime was loaded into trucks on the railway which ran below. Limestone came from Marsden Quarries to the west of the site, coal from Whitburn Colliery (1874 - 1968)....."
