Traces of limestone quarrying
Traces of limestone quarrying
Some NS4281 : Limestone outcrops are visible in the area, as well as the NS4281 : Remains of a lime-kiln. The centre of the present photograph shows a disturbed area of ground close to the location of the kiln; some pits are visible here, although they have long been overgrown with vegetation. It is likely that they are signs of limestone quarrying, from the same general period as the kiln (which probably dates from the eighteenth or the early nineteenth century).
Network of old limestone industry tracks :: NS4379
A very extensive network of ancient tracks on the moors in West Dunbartonshire links old quarries, ruined lime-kilns, and other sites connected with the local limestone-burning industry, which flourished in the 18th century. See LinkExternal link for a Geograph article about the network, and LinkExternal link for an annotated satellite view of it.
