Lime Kiln In Allendale, Northumberland
A cool little lime kiln up the side of a hill in Slaggyford.
First of all, let's take a moment to appreciate what a great name Slaggyford is!
Secondly, check out this beautiful little lime kiln poking out the side of a hill, still in pretty good condition.
We're confident the the lime kiln is no longer is use as it has a whacking big tree growing inside of it, giving it a funky hairstyle! And it definitely looks happy about it.
There is no nearby parking for this one and the surrounding roads appear to be private. Probably best to park a bit away and visit it as part of a walk.
Here is one we found on Gadgie Walks.

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.
Two chimneys that were part of the Allen Lead Smelt Mill flue system.
A ruined bastle which may not have been a bastle after all.
An ornamental pele tower that was once part of a 16th century manor house.
