“Hoffmann Kiln - Craven Lime Works”

Hoffmann Kiln - Craven Lime Works
Reviewed 9 November 2017

This certainly was a hidden treasure. The best preserved in the country. Even though I had worked out where it was on the map, we still had to ask a local (the road leading to the car park is opposite the stone works). The interpretation boards are wonderful, and it was great to be able to climb above to see the kiln from above on the pedestrian route. One could get really nice perspective shots inside due to the many chambers and there were only a couple of places where it was dark

Not well know or advertised, we came across this when doing a walk from Stainforth to Settle. Well worth a visit and good information boards on the site. You can go inside the kiln and I was amazed at the scale of the operations, but bigger than other lime kilns I have visited.

We were surprised at just how large this is. It is generally well preserved, although the chimney fell down some years ago. You can still go inside any of its many entrances, although the outside areas are somewhat overgrown. The connecting railway link has all but disappeared, but the kiln itself is well worth seeing.

A really good place to visit. I was glad that you can still gain access to the inside of the kiln. I was pleased to see almost no vandalism.

Trail was good, good esplanation of everything. Mind you though: after the rain it's a bit wet all over :)
