For a 2010 photo of the pub with a different colour-scheme, please see SK4855 : The Countryman Inn, Bentinck. This pub was previously called the Limeburners Arms Inn. It was the venue for the inquest for the 10 miners killed in the shaft cage accident at Bentinck Colliery on 30 June 1915 (see LinkExternal link ). The old name of the pub makes me wonder why there would have been the need for lime at this point. I suspect that the building of the London extension to the Great Central Railway in the 1890's generated a big demand for building materials (including lime). This demand could have been easily met here because there is an exposure of Permian limestone (Cadeby Formation Dolostone) about 200 metres to the north-east of the pub (see British Geological Survey map). The railway line ran just to the north of the pub and there was a railway station, Kirkby Bentinck, also about 200 metres away (see LinkExternal link ).
