Lime burning kiln
Lime burning kiln - Peake Station
Just north of William Creek near the Peake Historic Site is a lonely
and incongrous set of lime burning kilns.
These lime kilns were apparantly used to produce lime for the construction
of the Peake OTL Repeater Station (reference) and the nearby copper mine and smelter.
Between 1998 and 2000, Explore the Outback was instrumental in
the reconstruction of this lonely site with students from Pembroke
School (Adelaide) and the State Heritage department (SA Government).
It is now a heritage listed site.
