Lime Kiln, Island Road, Newmarket


Lime Kiln, Island Road, Newmarket

Groups audience: 

The Island Road lime kiln appears on the First Ed. OS. 1842 map and was, probably, built by the Alworths for themselves and their tenants. The existing brick arch is a recent intervention. The original arch had been removed, probably stolen.

In the accompanying audio Raymond O'Sulivan tells us of courting couples and walks to 'the kiln'.
