I now live in the USA , but as a child I use to go to church Kirk school and once played truent there as kids we use to call them the fairy caves, Billy aspen the headmaster of the school hunted us down there. This was around 1958. but I believe Collin is right they where coke ovens.

We always thought, and were told they were lime kilns, but I now bow to bettter localised information and agree to coke.
