UP DATE I wish to add an update to the information given by me. After speaking to my Uncle he has explained that this photo is of the fire pit that was built underground. This method gives enough heat to process the limestone. The rock containing the lime was sourced above ground.

This picture is also part of the Bonzle Mining (open in new window) photo collection.
