Fourlaws Quarry lime kiln (Corsenside)

The remains of a probable 19th century lime kiln stand in Fourlaws Quarry. It survives as a mound with two openings, but most of the masonry has fallen and the kiln has largely collapsed. The site of an earlier kiln lies to the north and nearby are traces of rails for moving the quarried stone and lime.
