Christon Bank Quarry lime kiln (Embleton)
A bank of 19th century lime kilns stand as a reminder of the former commercial limeworks at Christon Bank. The earliest part of the site probably dates to the early 19th century with a second kiln added later that century. The two kilns are made of brick. The first edition Ordnance Survey map of 1865 shows a limeworks on the site and the remains of a quarry lie to the north and is now flooded and planted with trees. This is a Grade II Listed Building protected by law.
