Type and Period (1)
- BRICK KILN (Post Medieval - 1540 AD to 1900 AD)
Grade II listed building. Brick kiln of intermittent updraught or Scotch kiln type, probably late 19th century. It is built of red brick, rectangular in plan, 9m long and 5.8m wide, with a wall thickness of one metre, capped by stone flags. The height of the walls is 3.7m. The south end is entered by a round-arched doorway, known as a 'wicket'. The north end wall is also pierced by a wicket, raised to first floor level to allow for stacking above head height. The east and west elevations are pierced at their bases by rows of seven fire-holes, lined with refractory brick containing coal ash from the last firing in c. 1940. (1)
