This is the site of a post-medieval pottery originally known as Walker's Pottery. The remains include a cottage, two updraft or bottle kilns, part of a tramway, at least one circular downdraft kiln and chimney, two Newcastle horizontal kilns, drying rooms with under floor heating, a puddling pond, and one or more pugmills and stables with a walled yard. The pottery was founded in the mid 19th century and closed in 1910. It made simple pottery objects, such as chimney pots and roof tiles. The pottery is a Scheduled Monument and some buildings and kilns at this site are Grade II listed buildings protected by law.
