Ros Castle Lime Kiln

Lime Kiln Alnwick Northumberland

Ros Castle Lime Kiln

Lime Kiln In Alnwick, Northumberland

A ruined lime kiln sitting between Cateran Hole and Ros Castle in the Alnwick area.

We've stoked to say we have found over a dozen lime kilns scattered over Northumberland, but despondent to find out we have to still find over 385 more!!

Anyway, here is another one to tick off our list. We spied it when we were visiting Cateran Hole and Ros Castle and since I couldn't find a proper name for it, then I will just refer to it as the Ros Castle Lime Kiln.

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.
