Description

[1-13] This site is a grade II listed building. It is an intermittent updraught Scotch kiln, probably late C19th. It is built of red brick, rectangular in plan, 9m long and 5.8m in width, with a wall thickness of 1m, capped by stone flags. It stand to a height of 3.7m. The S end is entered by a round-arched doorway, known as a 'wicket'. The N end wall is also pierced by a wicket, raised to the first floor level to allow for stacking above head height. The E and W elevations are pierced at their bases by rows of seven fire-holes, lined with refractory brick containing coal ash from the last firing c.1940. [There is a scaled drawing of this site in Marshall's 1988 report on pp.88-89, Fig 36-37]. Archaeological Comments - A survey has been carried out at 1:50 in 1987.
