Cumbria Limekilns

Kiln at Ashgill


Limestone is found right around Cumbria, usually at the edges of the central volvanic area. The limeburning industry that developed has left a large number of remains of the smaller field kilns across the uplands. It is clear that lime for agricultural improvement was a significant factor and these intermittent farm kilns have often survived due to their relative remoteness.

There are a number of websites covering limekilns in Cumbria. These include:
