Pit 13: Settling tank 22.5 metres by 9.5 metres by up to 2 metres deep. The interior was once lined with granite blocks. Channels from this tank directed clay slurry into four circular tanks to the south which suggests that some refining was also occurring in this tank before drying. A shallow channel runs parallel with the north-west side of the tank which would have served as a storm tye, directing water away to the east.
