Lime kiln and associated quay at on the north side of Warfleet in Castle Road, Dartmouth. Riverside quay with lime kiln. Probably early/mid 19th century. Local stone rubble. The quay, about 30 metres long, is built up on the rocky edge of Warfleet Creek, and is terraced into the hillside below Castle Road. It contains a lime kiln towards the east end built against the terrace so that it could be loaded from a platform on the same level as Castle Road. At quay level it contains 2 large arched openings up to a timber lintel with low relieving arch over (one replaced by concrete). Deep alcoves behind diminishing to small blocked raking holes. This well-preserved small quay with its lime kiln forms part of the industrial area at the head of the creek with the Dartmouth Pottery in Warfleet Creek Road.
