The monument consists of the remains of a limekiln, in which lime is made by calcining limestone. The limekiln is a Wye Valley type dating to the early 19th century and has two drawing arches to the front, fed by a single pot. The remains include trackways, ramps, walls and quarry.
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.
