The limekilns at Scarlett Point on the west side of Castletown Bay date
from 1808. These kilns have been extended at some time in their history
and would have served local demand. The Carboniferous limestone is exposed
in a fairly extensive quarry behind the kilns. Coal would have been brought
in by sea and offloaded across the beach or on a stone jetty of which
there are some remains.
By 1901 the kilns were already disused and proposals were being made for their infilling.
