Title:Gawton Mine and Arsenic Works. The Field Survey. 1988
Originator:Dixon, T. + Matthews, A. + Pye A. R. + Slater, W. D.
Summary:One of a range of four buildings oriented south west-north east and located east of the lime kilns (PRN 5491). Appears on 1867 map. A portion of it may be represented by a smaller structure shown on late 18th century and 1842 maps. Labelled 'stable' on 1875 map, but present structure includes fireplaces. Only the north wall and a fragment of the south wall survive, with two wall stubs at westend abutting the latest kiln (PRN 43343). Two rooflines visible in east face of kiln, one of which corresponds in height with north wall of this building. Walls are of shillet with some brick inclusions. North wall contained two large fireplaces, one of which possibly possessed a small oven. They would appear too large for domestic use. See PRN 43336 for the remaining three buildings of this range.
