Sole Beck Limekiln
Sole Beck Limekiln
Pre-dating the 1850 1st. Ed. OS Map of this area, this is a rather fine lime kiln in an area not known for limestone.
However after a bit of a wider investigation, it became apparent that a quarry was in use in Ilton extracting Namurian Age Limestone, known as the Cayton Gill Shell Beds.
The lime would have been used locally to improve pasture land, lime motar & for limewash.
