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

C19 limeworks including kilns and associated buildings. The ingress of rain and inadequate maintenance in the past have led to structural weaknesses to the buildings around the visitor entrance and kiln No. 2 which are parts of the site at risk. Historic England grant aided repairs to the Locomotive Shed, Blacksmith's Shop and part of the Loading shed which should be completed in 2018.
