Site visited in March 1977. Two adjoining buildings to the south of the road at Brent Moor China Clay Works. One measures about 14 metres square with a well-built stone faced bank 1.7 metres wide and about 1 metre high. There is a sluice at the south end of the common wall. The adjoining building is 20 metres long by 11.2 metres wide at the west end, and 8.2 metres wide at the east end. The shape seems to have been affected by the position of the road which curves a litte to the south here causing the tanks east end to be narrower than the west end.

Site 20: A stone built structure of two cells located to the south of the road which may have been a collecting tank for any remaining clay deposits suspended in the water before its return to the River Avon. The walls consist of earth banks with granite facings on both sides up to 2 metres wide and up to 0.8 metres high. The western cell is rectangular 12.7 metres by 15 metres.
