Former calcining kilns alongside former railway
These kilns at Rosedale East ironstone mine are called Iron Kilns, as they originally had iron fronts. They were built around 1860. Iron ore was heated with coal here to remove water and impurities. This reduced onward transport costs but produced large amounts of residual waste. See LinkExternal link for more information.
