NH92NE 51 NH 98489 25072

The remains of a limekiln are visible on the N edge of the gully some 90m WNW of Muckrach Castle. It comprises a U-shaped trench driven into the slope from the SW, with traces of the stone-faced pot still visible at its NE end. The pot measures 4m in diameter and is at least 1.8m deep. Farm rubbish has been dumped into the bottom of the pot. The arrangement of the draw hole is not clear, as it has been reduced to a grass-grown mound of rubble in the bottom of the trench. A kerb of stones running up to the lip of the pot on the SE is probably the remains of a loading platform; a trackway terrace approaches the open end of the trench from the E.
