Exposed Limekiln, Scar House Reservoir
Exposed Limekiln, Scar House Reservoir
A lack of rainfall during 2018 and a hot dry summer lowered water levels on various reservoirs across northern England, including Scar House, revealing features that had not been seen since the mid 1990's.
Previously un-photographed, this limekiln was marked as disused on maps long before the valley was flooded, in fact the woody remains that are inside the old kiln, may have been a tree that was growing inside the bowl before it was drowned.
Apart from a build up of silt, the limekiln is in remarkably good condition.
In the distance is Little Whernside, the most easterly 600m hill in England.
