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.
