4/61 The Monks' Oven
Large detached oven of uncertain date but associated with the monastery in whose
precinct it is built. Constructed of ashlar and rubble; exterior stone largely
robbed out leaving earth-covered mound with single, very low, semicircular-
headed doorway to centre of south-west face. Interior is c.1.75 m high and
c.3.95 m in diameter. The floor is constructed of tightly-packed stones; the
wall is constructed of ashlar and is of 3 courses with the top course shaped to
act as a springer for the shallow-domed roof which is constructed of small
stones packed tightly together end on. The monks' oven forms part of an
important group of monastic buildings and is positioned alongside a mill-leat.
