History

This kiln is marked on the Tithe Map of 1840, on Cosheston Hall estate. The kiln was sited to take limestone and coal landed from the estuary. Above it is a level area with access ramps and some terracing of the land, where stone and fuel were evidently stored. The site was called Limekiln Green and occupied by George Bowling; later occupiers were named Phillips. It was disused by the end of the century.

Exterior

The limekiln is semi-circular, about 6.5 m in diameter, and about 3.5 m in height. It is built of rubble local stone with neatly formed corbelled openings at the N and S sides. There are retaining walls extending from the kiln in wing form along the bank face. There are marks of a former shed over the S working hole and there was probably a shed over the N hole also, where there is presently a modern shed.

Interior

The interior of the kiln is about 2.8 m diameter and there are traces of a fireclay lining.
