This pit was formerly Lacey & Lincoln's. Two buried kilns (one each side of road) produced white bricks. Ironwork of donkey powered washpit survives. Yard not listed pre 1912, closed down around 1940.
Information from Norfolk Industrial Archaeology Society, October 1980.
Despite the above information which seems to have come from a Norfolk Industrial Archaeology Society Newsletter - there is no Norfolk Industrial Archaeology Society file - the (S1) shows the yard, and both kilns are shown south of the road. Copy in file.
