An early 19th century lime kiln stands near Allolee farmhouse. It is a large kiln, built into a bank and has now partly collapsed and is in ruins. It originally had one circular pot, lined with firebricks, and seems to have been built using some Roman stones. This is a Grade II Listed Building protected by law.
