Fu Tei Wan Lime Kiln, Tung Chung
Hugh Farmer: The SCMP of 10th Feb 2014 contained a letter from Tony Price complaining about the enclosure surrounding the Fu Tei Wan Lime Kiln. This, the kiln, was originally on Chek Lap Kok island but was relocated to its present location beside Tung Chung Battery and close to the old pier.
Mr Price commends The Antiquities and Monuments Office for the work it undertakes to protect Hong Kong’s heritage “sometimes in the face of indifference” . However he says the enclosure at this site “appears to be appropriate for the containment of large, wild and aggressive animals than part of a lime kiln.” I went past the kiln a few days ago and have to agree with Mr Price.
