I'd read about this and when the opportunity came to visit L leapt at it, and I'm so glad I had the chance to go here. An extraordinary feat of engineering, a huge and atmospheric tunnel with arches at regular intervals letting in pools of...More

It is worth the effort of tracking this place down. An incredible structure that is so hard to describe. Excellent display boards explain how the site worked in its heyday.

This is an amazing large brick structure which was used for making quicklime from the local limestone in large quantities. We enjoyed walking in and right around it and on a trail around some of the other, smaller and less preserved structures. There were some...More

A fascinating piece of industrial archaeology. The chambers are about 300 yards long. The surroundings are well explained via interpretation boards. I would say oK for supervised children 6+. Could get a bit muddy so wear suitable footwear. FREE

An excellent piece of industrial history. Well worth visiting. Plenty of car parking space. Do wear a stout pair of boots as it can be a bit muddy after recent rain.

This certainly was a hidden treasure. The best preserved in the country. Even though I had worked out where it was on the map, we still had to ask a local (the road leading to the car park is opposite the stone works). The interpretation...More

Not well know or advertised, we came across this when doing a walk from Stainforth to Settle. Well worth a visit and good information boards on the site. You can go inside the kiln and I was amazed at the scale of the operations, but...More

We were surprised at just how large this is. It is generally well preserved, although the chimney fell down some years ago. You can still go inside any of its many entrances, although the outside areas are somewhat overgrown. The connecting railway link has all...More

A really good place to visit. I was glad that you can still gain access to the inside of the kiln. I was pleased to see almost no vandalism.
