Devon Limekilns

Halsannery limekilns on the banks of the River Torridge


The generally poor soils of North Devon were subject to improvement through liming wherever supplies of the raw materials could be imported easily. Generally this meant stone brought in by sea.

There are good examples of kilns to be found on the coast and along the estuaries, some of which are in remarkably good state of repair.

If you have any comments please let me know.
