The quarry for the stone burned at the Stavely kilns has been won from some unusual drifts and cuts deep into the hillside in places. One has to assume that the stone was worth digging out by such tedious methods as there seems to the untrained eye to be just tons and tons of identical rock exposed and accessible nearby. There may have been another function for this concealed "room" - perhaps a dwelling for the lime burner or even an explosives store?
