Former calcining works.
Largely early 19th Century, but with later
additions reflecting longer period of use. Brick with tiled
roofs. Buildings arranged around a yard, with kiln in centre,
square in section, with two flues separated only at the apex.
Long range to the right formerly single storeyed raised in the
early 20th Century to incorporate a narrow tower.
Various other single storey workshops around the
perimeter of the site, and a small gabled building adjoining to
the left, possibly formerly an engine house, with tall stack at
the side of the gable.
