Default Whittle Quarry and Lime Kiln

Visited Whittle Quarry Lime Kiln the other day. Quite an imposing structure.

Quarrying the same limestone as the Shilbottle kiln: "The Great Limestone" which is about 40' thick here.

There's a nice view across the A1 to Newton on the Moor from up here (with the long lens on the camera)

you can just see in this photo the gold lettering on the side of the Cook and Barker
