LIME KILNS Survivor of the lime-exporting business on the Wear, the largest exporter of lime from the North East of England because of the nearby lime quarries and the river. The limestone was delivered by waggonway from Carley Hill Quarry. These listed buildings are late eighteenth and early/mid nineteenth century. The kilns are situated on the river bank between what was a mineral railway (now gone and replaced by Kier Hardie Way) and the river, in the grounds of what was Wearmouth Colliery. I hope to add a photograph in the near future

These gas holders are one of the few pieces of locational evidence that links 1928 to 2013. So much else has changed.

Double Decker bridge. The railway that was on top has been closed but the deck is still there.
