    This bank of lime kilns are found close by to Miller's Dale Station, between Buxton and Tideswell, Derbyshire. The station itself opened in 1878 and was served by the Midland Railway main line from Matlock to Chinley. Production at this works was ended in 1930 when the quarry above became unstable and the rock face started to slip forward due to overlying a clay bed.

    Nice relaxed explore. On closer examination there were a number of other structures to the left of the main kilns. The thing I love about this place is how nature has taken back what man once made. The structures have tumbled down and are now covered in thick green moss.

    Came across this structure on the way out...

    And this one near by to the lime works:

    On to the kilns themselves:

    These are the tumbled-down buildings to the left of the main site:

    Which nature is slowly taking back:

    To the point where some are hard to make out as buildings:

    This is the largest of the structures:

    This little building seems to have found a new usage:
