1/2 Brick kiln at
Incorrectly shown as Brickyard Farm on OS map.
Brick kiln; Scotch type. c1800 with minor C20 alterations. Red
brick. Rectangular on plan. Single storey with battered side
walls and buttresses, having 8 flues to each side. The left hand
end has a wide C20 opening, probably an enlargement of the
original access, with a pent corrugated iron roof. This opening
is flanked by 2 original battered buttresses. The interior has a
slightly pointed brick vault with narrow vent slots, arranged in
8 pairs, between the flues in the sides but at a higher level.
To the apex of the vault are 9 small square ventilator holes.
Apart from the enlarged opening and cracking due to thermal
stress of the side walls, the structure is in good order and
represents an unusually complete survival of a once common
building type. The original brick pits can be seen to the east
of the kiln. A brick kiln is shown on the OS map of 1806.
