|Parish:||ELLINGHAM, SOUTH NORFOLK, NORFOLK|
Around 1870. Found 270m (300 yards) north of Ellingham Hall.
17th or 18th century kiln or glass furnace.
R. R. Clarke (NCM), 1934.
August 1977. Visit.
No trace on surface. A weed covered field margin between crop and woods. I think it was doubtful that it was a glass furnace, and what is the evidence for the date? Note 'Old Brick Kiln Cottage' on map to north (now demolished).
E. Rose (NAU), 2 August 1977.
