Location Grove, Portland
County Dorset
Grid Reference SY 69641 72782

The kiln at Grove was built c.1900 within an enclosed yard which was principally used for dressing stone. It was constructed and operated by prisoners from the Portland Convict Establishment. It is likely that lime production at the kiln ceased in 1921 when prison became a Borstal Institution and the quarry and associated masonry works closed.
