Vis=31/1/1982 (griffith). A group of limekilns in fairly poor condition, extremely overgrown. They are set a little back from the canal quay (sx98nw/78) and are reached by a lane leading across the marshes to exminster. The os 25" plan (last surveyed 1936) shows 4 wells in a continuous structure: at time of site visit only 3 wells were accessible or visible. The block of kilns is set in a small yard, the wall of which allows access all round. Adjacent at sx94618872 are the remains of a small dwelling house. 'limekiln' and the access road are shown here on donn's map of 1765.
