Powys Limekilns

Penwyllt, Pen-y-foel kilns to west of railway and old brickworks


Powys covers a large area across central Wales and has some extensive limestone quarries and associated kilns in its southern area. Elsewhere the limekiln remains are often found along the canals which reach into the county. These are notable along the Montgomeryshire Canal where imported stone was burned at various points for local agricultural use. Likewise there are some extensive banks of kilns along the Brecon and Abergavenny Canal.
