Retaining wall (203a) running between the Copper crusher engine and boiler house plinths and the shaft kiln (figs 75-6). The south end has brick reveals. Shaft kiln (bottle) furnace (204) is a roughly rectangular building constructed from stone masonry (figs 75-6). On the top edge is a brick structure; apparently a feed hopper. On the south-east elevation are two double brick arches, one for each furnace. The bolt boxes and bolts are still evident on this elevation.
