Historic England Research Records

Monument Number 975391

Hob Uid: 975391
Location :
Somerset West and Taunton
Brompton Regis
Grid Ref : ST0199434136
Summary : The remains of a well preserved double block limekiln, served by the WSMR, lie to the south of Carnarvon New Pit on the Brendon Hills
More information : ST 0199 3415. Two limekilns, Brendon Hill. For details see county SMR. (1)

The limekilns described by the previous authority were seen as stone foundations and mapped from aerial photographs. A trackway connects the limekilns to the road to the south east, and on the north side of the kilns is an embankment, which presumably had a siding on it in order to link the kilns with the West Somerset Mineral Railway. The limekilns situation suggests they were in operation at the same time as surrounding ironstone mining in the second half of the nineteenth century. (2)

The remains of a double-block limekiln built into an artificial embankment lie at ST 0199 3415. The top of the kiln was accessed via a siding from the WSMR (3).
