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.
