Record Details

NHER Number:16695
Type of record:Monument
Name:Site of lime kiln and possible brick kiln


This limekiln had five furnaces. One has been broken, revealing bricks on the end forming a bell. The site is marked as a lime kiln on Great Snoring Tithe Map but as a brick kiln on Bryant's map of 1826. It is possible there was a brick kiln here too or that Bryant was mistaken.
