Description

The monument consists of the remains of a pottery kiln. The earthwork remains of one of the earliest potteries so far located at Buckley. Trial excavations in 1972/74 revealed a working floor and pan. Finds recovered date from the late 17th c to the mid 18th c.

The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of pottery manufacturing techniques and processes. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. The structure itself may be expected to contain archaeological information concerning chronology and building techniques.

The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
