It was mined in Vendryně in 3 quarries and was fired in 2 kilns, in the local dialect called "wopienky". For surrounding users were in operation after 1895, when the extraction of iron ore was finished for its low yield.
Furnaces were repaired during the operation in a very primitive way - both by walling system and to maintain the stability of steel bandages and supports. Lime kilns operation definitively ended in 1965. Lime kilns operation definitively ended in 1965. At that time extraction in adjacent limestone quarries was terminated. remained in its place-and thanks to the significant contribution of the Ministry for Regional Development the kilns were repaired and preserved in their present form, in order to serve as a reminder for future generations.
