Tyne and Wear HER(1757): Fulwell Quarry, Lime Kiln - Details
Fulwell Quarry, Lime Kiln
At Fulwell Quarry (HER ref. 2680), source of 'cannonball limestone' is a long range of very attractive lime kilns. There are three long oval kilns with three or four openings. The stonework, of magnesian limestone, has vertical recessed panels on the vertical face, one above each opening. The access openings have been partly concealed at their base by waste tipping, and the kilns probably date from the second half of the 18th century. [The ground level of the site has recently been raised, partly obscuring the features as described above]. Further lime kilns are at NZ 392 596 (HER ref. 2695).
