Always knew about this place was on this forum years and years ago. I happened to drive by after a work meeting so stopped to take a look. Unfortunately there's been a arson attack inside ans is looking worse for wear!
But luckily the lovely structure of the outer building is still standing proud.
John Ellis was a major producer of lime who operated a driftmine nearby.
They produced lime until 1925. In the meantime the company had begun to manufacture cement in the early 1900's. The manufacture of concrete building blocks and other precast concrete goods commenced soon after. Cement production ceased in about 1935 but the concrete products were still made, with the cement coming from Ketton and the aggregate by rail from the nearby Mountsorrel granite quarry.
