Historic England says that ‘The lime kilns, associated tramways, structures and other buildings at Llanymynech, together with adjacent Welsh quarries, form a particularly well preserved and complete group of structures relating to a once relatively widespread industry. In particular, the Hoffmann kiln represents the best preserved example of its type in England and provides an additional component found on very few other lime processing sites.’
