Lime plant, French Heritage monument to St varent
These two furnaces were constructed in a unevenness of terrain and have a height of about 4-5 m. currently, the facade wall, slightly talute, rises about 4 m above the level of the pre-dies and form the back wall of a shed. It is likely that this wall has been raised after the decommissioning of the ovens. One of the gules fits in a semicircular arch, while than the other in an arch. The ovens being clogged and the gules flooded by a mare that was located at the foot of the massif, it is not possible to know the shape of the tanks. This lime plant included two fours à chaux probably dating from the 1860s. Were these not working already in 1898. Drop before their gules allowed the construction of a pond, while a farm shed relied on the anterior wall of the massif.
