Date of visit 11 January 2004

  The East Buxton Lime Works was opened in 1880 adjacent to the Midland Railway west of Millers Dale Station. The two kilns were cut into the solid rock and it was only in the 1920's that the concrete buttresses were added. The kilns were served by a narrow gauge tramway from the adjacent quarry and the tipping skips were hauled up an incline to be emptied into the two pots. Production ended here in 1944.
