Notes about this historic site

1 Haverfield located 19th century finds of Roman pottery kilns in Caldecote quarry, at about this grid reference. The OS also located the kilns at about this point. Swann has tentatively followed the location given by the OS. It is actually apparent from the earliest accounts that the kilns were found some 2km to the NW (see MWA2789).
2 Noted, giving this location for ‘first kilns at Hartshill: producing coarswares and mortaria’, finds 1881-7. However, see MWA2789 for information about the locational inaccuracy of this particular site.
