October 1978. Field Observation.
A member of the public  advised that this was the site of a brick kiln. 'Brick walls in a hollow' were apparently visible here before dumping.A deep overgrown pit to the north could be seen during a visit to the site. The farm buildings seem 18th century, perhaps dating the kiln.
