SX 25 NW MORVAL SANDPLACE

3/75 Limekiln 40m to south east of Old - Post Office

GV II

Limekiln. Possibly C18. Stone rubble with round arched dressed stone openings with deeply splayed reveals. Rectangular in plan probably with 2 cylindrical chambers within. Openings on right and left with further half round arch on front leading to third grate served by right-hand chamber. Flat top, built into side of steep slope to aid top loading with road access from left. Much overgrown at time of inspection. Built about 60m to east of East Looe River and Liskeard and Union Canal which was authorised in 1825 for agricultural work linking Liskeard with the tidal water at Looe. Limestone carried by barge was burnt at the 4 limekilns at Sandplace (qv Limekiln Cottage and limekiln adjoining to left, limekiln 40m south east of Old Post Office, Limekiln on A 387 to north of Bamada and Limekilns adjoining Higher Cliff in Duloe Parish). The canal was later replaced by the Liskeard and Caradon Railway opened in 1846. Full accounts for the canal including plans and sections, correspondence and list of land use in Cornwall County Record Office. Records extant for erection of limekilns at Sandplace by John Francis Buller of Morval in 1743 and 1766-67 (Anthony : BA/20/17b). Farm accounts reveal that Morval lands received a heavy dressing of lime to counteract the acidity of the soil making it suitable for wheat and barley. An annual lease of 1777 required each acre of land to be dressed with 80 horse loads of good salt, sea sand or four 16 gallon bushels of lime.
