Monument Number 957659

Hob Uid: 957659
Location :
Somerset West and Taunton
Grid Ref : SS8923048400
Summary : The site of a post medieval limekiln was noted on various maps as being the most easterly of a group of four. There is no ground evidence for this structure.
More information : SS 8923 4840. The site of a lime kiln located on the coast at Bossington Beach near Porlock.

The site of the most easterly of four kilns is shown on an 1809 Bossington Estate map (a). The kilns are depicted as unannotated open circles but appear in the apportionment as 'Lime Kiln' (sic). The other three kilns (SS 84 NE 50, 51 and 52) are also shown on the 1842 Tithe Map (b) as unannotated rectangular buildings but this one is not, suggesting that it had already gone by then. The site falls on a massive shingle bank but there is no evidence of its existance on the ground now.

No survey action. (1)
