The monument consists of the remains of 6 limekilns, in which lime is made by calcining limestone. These are of the continuous vertical type with six drawing arches to the front, each some 3m high and built of dressed stone voussoirs with pronounced keystones. The kiln bank is built of large randomly coursed rubble and is slightly barrered, rising to a height of some 15m. There are iron tie bars to the front, and a datestone marked 1852 at the centre. Most of the kiln bowls are complete, and fire bars are still visible in the drawing holes. The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of industrial manufacturing processes. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. The structure itself may be expected to contain archaeological information concerning chronology and building techniques. A lime kiln may be part of a larger cluster of monuments and their importance can further enhanced by their group value. The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
