SD 97 SE KETTLEWELL WITH STARBOTTON B6160 (west side) Kettlewell
11/91 Knipe Scar Limekiln
Limekiln. Probably early C19, restored 1983. Limestone rubble. Square in plan, terraced into the steep hill slope, approximately 5 metres wide and 4 metres high on the north side which has the extraction arch of roughly- dressed voussoirs. Lime was in demand for the production of mortar or as a fertiliser during the period 1750-1850. This example is situated below the quarry where the stone was obtained, and the access from the present road is clear; it is one of the few surviving limekilns of many hundreds built prior to the large-scale lime production on the edge of the Dales in the latter part of the C19. A. Raistrick, Old Yorkshire Dales, 1967, p78
