Keys to the Past

Low Dinsdale Manor (Low Dinsdale)

Excavations took place here in 1885, though they were poorly recorded. It is believed that a possible pottery kiln was found, and large amount of pottery was discovered. This may have been where Tees Valley Ware, an important local type of medieval (1066 to 154) pottery was made. It may also have been a kiln built in the mid 17th century by Francis Place, who experimented in the production of pottery in this area.
