    Driving along the A6 just outside Buxton and you can't help but notice the monolithic buildings slightly up the hill on your right.

    You can't get a sense of the true size of the buildings and kilms until you visit the site, a short hop over the gate and you are stood directly in front of the first building, This is where I was taking pictures of a sleeping bag and a couple of jerry cans of petrol when the owner of the sleeping bag walked in, we stood looking at each other for what seemed like hours was prolly only a few seconds before I decided to say hi, once we had a quick chat he seemed at ease and I continued on.

    The Kilns themselves are massive and reminded me of an Inca building I once saw on a documentary, continuing along trying not to trip on the undergrowth and rumble I decided to scramble up the hill and around the top, this was almost very costly as near the top some of the ground gave way and I dolphin dived forward managing to take a picture as I hit the ground.

    Anyway on with the history and pics

    Yes I fell over and when there's a 30 foot drop at the side of you, you kind panic

    This is a little shaky, as I was taking the pic the owner of the sleeping bag walked in behind me
