Full description

South West Heritage Trust, 1838-1848, Digitised Tithe Maps and Transcribed Apportionments (Cartographic). SDV359954.

The kiln is not depicted on the Tithe Map for Trusham. The field name of Blackley does not indicate the presence of a kiln.

Next Perspectives, 2015-2017, Aerial Photography for Great Britain, Next Perspectives APGB Imagery SX8682 15-08-2016 (Aerial Photograph). SDV361515.

The earthwork is obscure by tree cover.


Hegarty, C., Knight, S. and Sims, R., 2018-2019, The South Devon Coast to Dartmoor Aerial Investigation and Mapping Survey. Area 1, Haldon Ridge to Dart Valley (Interpretation). SDV361305.

A platform or terrace roughly 10m by 14m in size is visible as an earthwork on images derived from lidar data captured between 1998 and 2017, on the west-facing combe slopes to the east of Trusham village. The visible earthwork corresponds with the location of the former lime kiln depicted on the Ordnance Survey First Edition 25-inch map. The presence of a kiln is not depicted or inferred from field name evidence on the Tithe Apportionments for Trusham, and might therefore have been a shortlived 19th century operation. The earthwork is obscured from view by tree cover on digital images derived from aerial photographs of 2016.
