Amberley Limeworks; entrance buildings, Kiln 2 and Office, Houghton Bridge, Amberley / Houghton, Horsham - South Downs (NP)

C19 limeworks including kilns and associated buildings. Historic England grant aided repairs to the Locomotive Shed, Blacksmith's Shop and part of the Loading Shed are now complete. However the ingress of rain and inadequate maintenance in the past have led to structural weaknesses to the buildings around the visitor entrance, the southern lime kilns and kiln No. 2, which are the parts of the site still at risk..
