616-1/1/90 (South side (off))
Limehouse at NGR SK 0415 7262


Limehouse. Late C18. Quarried lime refuse and remnants of
stone walling. Simple rectangle, open to front and partially
open to right-hand, with overhanging roof. There are traces of
stone walling to front right-hand.
Unique survival of the noted limehouses recorded in
contemporary literature from 1780s onwards.
A description of 1797 records them as often having 3 or 4
rooms and being built next to the limekiln. An example is
illustrated in A Jewitt's "History of Buxton" 1811. Other
descriptions were given by the geologist Faujas St Fond and
Murrays Handbook 1874. This example is reputed to have been
occupied at the time of the 1841 census.
(Murrays Handbook for Travellers in Derbys.: 1874-; Jewitt A:
History of Buxton: 1811-).
