Flint furnaces. Late C18. Coursed squared and dressed sandstone
blocks with some brick dressings. The furnaces are set in a bank with
a retaining wall on 2-faces approximately 2m high facing north and
east, this has 2 buttresses in the larger north face and 2 small
elliptically-arched furnace openings (brick dressed to left) set
between. Further opening to east. The remainder of the mill complex
is set across the yard to the north, including kiln (q.v.), grinding
mills (q.v.) and manager's house (not included). Flint was fired,
ground in the mills and bake-dried to form 'slop', an admixture to
produce more durable and finely-textured tile and pottery used by
the nearby 5 towns in the C19.
