Hoffmann Kiln at Langcliffe Quarry
Hoffmann Kiln at Langcliffe Quarry
Sited beside the Settle to Carlisle railway this is England's best preserved continuous lime burning kiln. Lime was burnt for agriculture and mortar production. Langcliffe and the Hoffman Continuous Kiln was built in 1873 for the Craven Lime Company. The kiln at Langcliffe had 22 chambers where limestone was continuously burned in a circuit that took around six weeks to complete. It was shut down in 1931 but used sporadically during the war. The chimney fell down in the 1950s.

Well worth a look.
