Notes about this historic site

3 The Tithe Apportionment Map and OS map mark a brickworks here. The original building in which the bricks were made is still extant. The ovens are also still intact along the N facing interior wall, but the remainder, of which at least sixteen can be seen, have been bricked over. The remains of quarrying for materials can be seen just to the N and NE of the building cutting into the hillside. According to the present owner brickmaking was discontinued here in the late 19th century.
