LONGHOUGHTON LITTLE MILL Main limekiln to east of the Limery

GV II*

Limekiln. Early C19, enlarged later C19. Roughly-coursed large squared rubble with cut quoins and dressings; brick voussoirs to transverse passage arches, eyes and lining of pots. Plan: massive rectangular structure c.30 metres x 18 metres with charging ramp to south; the eyes of the eight integral kilns all open onto a central north-south passage; additional airflow from three smaller transverse passages.

External walls slightly battered. North end shows tall central pointed arch with alternating jambs; side walls each show three smaller round arches, that to north the smallest. Overall height c.18 metres. At south end sloped-down retaining walls to end of charging ramp. On top four pairs of pots, elliptical on plan.

Interior: Central passage has ashlar pointed vault; on each side 4 segmental- headed drawing arches, with projecting sills, and twin segmental-headed eyes with a pilaster between. At south end of passage a shaft to the surface, now capped. The 3 transverse passages have straight joints in their side walls showing that the kiln has been widened.

One of the largest C19 limekilns in the country, and generally well preserved.
