HER Number:MDV122902
Name:Demolished buildings at Redlake Clay Works

Summary

Fragmentary footings of two structures are all that remains of a range of buildings depicted by E A Wade (1985) to the south of Redlake clay pit. These two were built from stone and brick but totally demolished, leaving a few short lengths of in-situ footings and a section of a chimney breast to the south. The northern of these buildings was probably the Blacksmith’s shop which has the concrete base of an anvil with fixing studs in-situ. Other buildings in this range were of timber, of which nothing remains apart from the levelled ground on which they stood.
