  • Full Description

    <1> Site of Rossington Bridge Farm Kiln(s) on South Side of the River Torne. "In the ploughed field about 220m south of the kilns excavated a Rossington bridge Pumping Station, one the south side of the River Torne, excavations in 1959 by a local amateur, W. Ingram, located two Roman Pottery Kilns. The exact location and orientation of these kilns is open to some doubt and the plans and notes are often mutually contradictory… The kiln products show considerable overlap with the material from the other Rossington Kilns and waster tips.

    See PIN 00970/01 for further discussion of Rossington pottery production.
