'Brick Works' are shown on First edition Ordnance Survey plan. A pair of horizontal through-draught kilns survives on a site otherwise cleared of its former buildings and now host to a piggery. Three 19th century brick making sites were situated within a quarter of a mile radius in this area. The surviving kilns recorded in 1994 were then due for demolition.
