Carbis Brick and Tile Works
Row of 3 beehive kilns and chimney, of the Carbis brick and tile works. Late
C19. Granite rubble and brick. Row of 3 beehive kilns running in a north/
south axis, with square plan chimney to the south of the northernmost kiln.
Circular kilns, about 7 metres in diameter, in granite rubble with coping at
the top of the vertical walling, domed brick roofs. Each kiln has a segmental
-headed brick doorway to front and rear; the interior is completely faced in brick; with a central circular brick structure for the flue above the furnace, with ventilation slits. The furnace was below the kiln, each kiln with a ventilation hole at the top of the domed roof.
The chimney stands on a square battered granite plinth, the square chimney in white brick with cast iron bracing to corners. Base about 3 metres by 3
metres, slightly tapered.
Beehive kilns are a rare survival in Cornwall.
