What appeared to be six separate furnaces or kilns were identified during the excavation of service trenches at Trail View in late 2014. They were observed in conjunction with brick and clinker, and were about 6-7 feet below the ground surface. (1)
There is an 'Old Clay Pit' situated just to the north of Trail View on the 2nd edition 25" OS map of c. 1900. The pit earthworks also appear on the 1st edition 25" OS map of c. 1880 but they are not labelled. It is quite possible that the features identified on site were post-medieval brick kilns associated with the former clay pit. (2, 3, 4)
