Beadnell Lime Kilns

  • Description

    In November 1798, it was agreed that Richard Pringle should build a Limekiln on the pier at Beadnell where the coal and limestone would be taken from the local estate of John Wood. The coal would be used to burn the limestone to produce two cartloads of lime. The kiln was expected to produce a thousand cartloads of lime a year. The loads would then be exported to England and Scotland by sea.
