In October 2016 several enthusiastic members of Lowick Heritage Group, under the leadership of Phillip Hanson, began a project to conserve the remains of the Dryburn Limekiln. The structure has been scheduled as a Grade 2 listed building by Heritage England and is situated about 200m east of the ‘Doll’s House’ at the junction of Eelwell Road and the B6525. The derelict cottages at the roadside_once served as homes for the lime workers. The ultimate aim of the project is to make the site accessible to the public and to provide the principal focal point along a proposed ‘Heritage Trail’ around the parish of Lowick.
Much work has been done in clearing and preparing the site – and you access the Heritage Group’s first progress report by clicking here.
