The Wild Beauty of the Coast to Coast Path

Gallop End Limekiln - Marske - Swaledale

Gallop End Limekiln, Marske, Coast to Coast

Gallop End limekiln is a prodigious disused limekiln on Gallop End, which is the rocky outcrop forming the east ridge top finger of Deer Park Wood, above the disused Gallop End Quarry and slightly east of Hollins Farm. It is on the outskirts of Marske village in Swaledale.

It can be seen from the Coast to Coast path by looking over the field boundary wall between Ellers and Hollins Farm. It is seen as a circular structure with arched apertures below an outcrop of rock of the same colour, near to the top of the hill. Thus it blends in well with the background and is not likely to be noticed by chance. Carol and I did not see it at all, but were taking a photograph of Hutton's Monument which rises just above the hill behind the limekiln. We only became aware of it when looking at the photograph several weeks later.

Hutton's Monument can be seen, just, in the photograph below near the crest of the hill.
