Lime Kiln In Alwinton, Northumberland
Another beauty of a lime kiln situated in Low Alwinton.
Just a few miles south of the village of Alwinton sits the Low Alwinton Lime Kiln.
Built around 1827 it was used by the Selby family to supply lime to the Biddlestone estate, but due to competition from commercial kilns and the high operating costs it was no longer used from 1866.
It was restored by the Northumberland National Park Authority and you are free to view the front of it, but the surrounding area is private land, so please keep to the bridleway.
It has a canny view too!

Walk past the church and take the path that merges off left from the main road. You will go past some farm buildings and then the lime kiln is a few minutes walk from there.

Thanks for checking out this place on the Fabulous North! I do enjoy a wander out in to the countryside trying to find hidden gems that not many people know about. You can't beat a rogue Pele tower up a remote hill or a mysterious stone circle or a stunning waterfall secluded in a forest.
