Description

The overgrown remains of the incline to the Porth Wen Brickworks. The track has been removed but the trackbed remains along with the raking retaining walls of random rubble masonry c.1m deep.

The incline and winding house appear on the 1st edition OS map, 1889, and appears to be 2 track incline, the winding house marking the termination of the 2nd incline track, though the lines of the track bed are marked as continuing to a quarry to W (disused). By 1900 it was believed that the site was disused , and although marked on the OS map of that year as 'Brickworks' no kilns were identified. The 1924 edition shows the site much as it strands today, though the winding house was not shown on the later 25" map edition.
