    Took a while to figure out exactly which bit of wood this was in having seen mention of it on other sites, then a couple of hours traipsing round in the rain to locate it; well worth the effort.
    Norwich has many chalk mines running underneath it and the remains of many quarries tucked away in it's woods. This site at Eaton also has a mine, which I have yet to locate, but this kiln is a bit of industrial treasure, used to cook chalk to turn it into quicklime which was then used as a mortar in many of the cities old buildings.

    A bat brick has been embedded above one of the grates, no bats in residence on this visit. Some lovely large slugs on the ceiling though.
