DARTINGTON SHINNER'S BRIDGE SX7862-SX7962 Pair of Limekilns about 60 metres E of 12/151 Shinners Bridge House
Pair of attached disused limekilns. Circa early to mid C19. Limestone rubble. Pair of attached lime-kilns built into bank with access at higher level at rear for loading. There is a masonry joint on the front wall between the two kilns as evidence that they are not coeval; the smaller kiln to the right is likely to be the earlier. The front wall is flat and has a parapet; 2 strong courses and 2 pointed arch swallows with a corbel stone at the apex. The left-hand swallow is the larger and the lower string-course does not continue over it. Each swallow is vaulted inside with a kiln opening at the back. The deep circular kilns are open at the top and tapered towards the bottom. Vegetation is growing on the top of the kilns which are situated by a disused quarry.
