Millers Dale lime works opened in 1878 and this bank of kilns was served by the Midland Railway main line from Matlock to Chinley. The lime produced here was used both in the chemical and steel industries as well as for agriculture.

Production at this works was ended in 1930 when the quarry above became unstable and the rock face started to slip forward due to overlying a clay bed.
