  • Summary: Excavation in 2006 showed that this land had been quarried, reinstated, then had 4 circular kilns cut into it. The kilns were an inverted cone shape; surviving brick courses show they were originally lined. They were last fired in the C18th/C19th.
  • Description: Three of the kilns were excavated. They were circular, 3-4m diameter, 1.8-2m deep, tapering to a base diameter of 1-1.3m diameter. These inverted, cone shaped, 'pot' kilns were originally brick lined. Each kiln had a narrow entrance on one side abutted by a low dry-stone wall. '1'
