Former lime kilns, Seahouses Harbour
Former lime kilns, Seahouses Harbour
Lime kilns were (and are) used to heat and convert limestone or chalk (calcium carbonate) to quicklime (calcium oxide), which was/is used as mortar and in agriculture. Before the railways, limestone and coal (for fuel) were brought by sea to quayside kilns at small parts like Seahouses. The lime-making is long gone but the kilns live on as useful storage space. There are commonly seven kilns (as here) to allow production (loading 1 day, heating 3 days, cooling 2 days and unloading 1 day) to occur on a weekly rotation. Grade-II listed: LinkExternal link .
