Abstract

Planning permission is being sought by Rural Solutions for the development of the site of the historic Craven Limeworks, at Langcliffe, near Settle, North Yorkshire (SD 8237 6624). The proposed development is to include a Kiln Interpretation Centre, a Rural Business Centre, and a waste disposal facility. The Hoffman Kiln was an innovative design in 1873 when the site was established. It was located adjacent to the then recently established Settle Carlisle railway so as to provide an economic outlet for the lime. It continued in use until, albeit intermittently, until 1939 The site is a Scheduled Monument and Scheduled Monument Consent was required in order to undertake the evaluation. English Heritage issued a brief for an archaeological evaluation of the area of former railway sidings, known as the Stainforth Sidings, and works depot area. This comprised a programme of trial trenching, which was designed to elucidate the extent, depth, function, chronology and relative significance of any archaeological deposits. The results of these works will be used to inform any further required mitigation strategy.
