The principal surviving structure at the Shaugh Brickworks is the roofless remains of the tunnel brick kiln (I). It comprises two parallel mortared granite walls 1.2 metres wide and standing up to 1.7 metres at the northern end. The kiln is now 50.4 metres long although there is evidence that it was originally 62 metres long. A bulge on the eastern side may represent the position of the furnace. Three pairs of vertical slots mark the location of vertical doors which were later modified. To the east of the kiln is 6 metre wide strip of levelled ground (M) with a possible trackbed of a tramway (P) further to the east.
