Limekiln Drawhole
Limekiln Drawhole
The kilns were 9m (30ft) high, open at the top and with up to three drawholes at the base: These were used to draw off the quicklime and also to control combustion by regulating the airflow - They originally had iron doors as shown in NT0683 : Lime Kiln Door. The kilns were fed a mixture of limestone and coke from the top and burned continuously.
