Lime kiln below Windmore End Quarry
Lime kiln below Windmore End Quarry
Windmore End Quarry is a long band of rock, presumably limestone, on the lower south-western slope of the moorland hill, Iron Band, lying east of the B6276. The lime kiln, seen at the centre of the horizon, is a relatively small and well preserved feature. The kiln is surely far too small to account by itself for the extent of quarrying which has taken place; much of the quarried stone must have seen use elsewhere.
