3/15 Set of 6 bread ovens in
the north garden wall of
the Old Hall
Set of 6 bread ovens: probably early C18. At the west end of the
north wall is a block in handmade red brick. This has 2 tiers of 3
rectangular openings with segmental brick heads. (All now blocked).
These would have been the openings to bread ovens with one of the
lower tier probably being a firebox. The ovens survive, cased in
brick to the rear.
Timber-framed houses often had external ovens, but this is a
remarkably large group.
Listed for group value only.
