The English Heritage Angel Awards

The Grade II listed Little Mill Lime Kilns are situated near Lonhoughton in Northumberland and were built sometime between 1725 and 1825.Circular in plan, the single pot lime kilns are constructed from coursed rubble with a charging ramp leading into the kiln from the south and three segmental-headed drawing arches separated by massive buttresses.

The works completed by Historic Property Restoration involved taking down and rebuilding the first 10 courses of the wall tops, consolidating the core of the kiln walls where they had collapsed, removal of vegetation, rebuilding the facing stonework and rebuilding the boundary walls.

The project was recognised by a certificate of recognition in the English Heritage Angel Awards in 2013.
