Swinhope Row lime kilns (Allendale)
Two lime kilns stand about 300m apart at Swinhope Row. Both are built into a slope, have one pot, one [draw arch] with one eye, and are built of dry stone construction. 'Kiln A' is in better condition than 'Kiln B', which is partly collapsed. There are quarries nearby and one of the kilns is shown on the first edition Ordnance Survey map of 1865.
