Lime Kiln In Alnwick, Northumberland
A ruined lime kiln sitting between Cateran Hole and Ros Castle in the Alnwick area.
It's near some farm buildings (advertising ice lollies!!) and is just a short walk from the grass verge. There is a fence, but you can get pretty near to admire it without crossing it.
If you are heading down from Cateran Hole then you will spy the lime kiln in the distance as you look towards Ros Castle.

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.
