- II

Slip drying kiln and sheds. Early C19 with late C19 and C20 additions.
Coursed stone and red brick (to later parts); tiled roof; verge
parapets to west; large chimney (approximately 10m high) set to rear.
Single-storey and attic front in 2 parts, of stone to left and brick
to right; the former, earlier part has a boarded door to left of
centre and blocked small opening to left. The right-hand part in 2
periods of brickwork has a double door set against the butt joint
dividing the 2 parts and a further boarded door to the right. The
raised drying floor for the kilns is set within a lean-to at the rear
running the centre length of the building and part open to the north.
The kiln shed forms part of the Cheddleton flint mill complex including
grinding mills (q.v.) and furnaces (q.v.), set in a close and attractive
group. 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.
