CORNWORTHY SX85NW DITTISHAM MILL CREEK 7/85 Limekiln Approximately 150 Metres South West of Dinah's Side

II

Disused limekiln. Probably late C18 or early C19. Local stone rubble including slate rubble. The limekiln has a flat front and rounded corners; it is built into a band at the rear for top loading. The walls are slightly battered. There is a dripcourse at the front over the central swallow opening which has a pointed arch with a long timber lintel at the apex. The swallow is corbelled inside and at the back there is a square stoking hole with a stone lintel. The kiln has been filled in from the top. Attached to the right and left of the front there are low walls which are probably the remains of a shelter for the lime. This is one of two limekilns on the foreshore of this creek. The other one is depicted in a water colour painting, dating 1792, by John White Abbott (1763-1851) (qv) cottage store and limekiln immediately west south west of Dinah's Side.
