Lime Kilns

Water pumped from the chalk is termed ‘hard’ water.  From 1903 to 1969, except in time of war, the water supplied from Twyford was softened.  The ‘lime softening process’ used required supplies of quicklime which was made from chalk from the quarry burnt in these lime kilns.  It was a labour intensive process and was an extremely hazardous environment in which to work.
