Lime Cells

A rare survivor from the early days of the railways

The Grade II listed Lime Cells were constructed in the 1840s and functioned as a store for limestone, delivered by rail, for use in the urban development of Darlington. The Lime Cells have been out use since the end of the 19th Century.

The Lime Cells are currently closed to the public.
