Description:Photograph taken from the Foxt Road looking toward the working lime kilns on the lower basin on the Caldon Canal at Froghall. To the right Brunner Mond boats are being loaded in the top lock of the Uttoxeter Canal. The limestone being processed here was transported from the quarry at Cauldon Low.

The lime kilns at Froghall stand near to Froghall Basin and the Caldon Canal. The Caldon Canal opened in 1779 and links Froghall to the Trent and Mersey Canal at Etruria, Stoke-on-Trent. The canal also ran in the opposite direction from Froghall to Uttoxeter until this section closed around 1849.
