Walker's Pottery, Milkwell Lane, made pipes, tiles, bricks and various items for agricultural use from the earlier 19th century until about 1910. Seen here are the works' two bottle kilns which stand some 15m high.
In the distance a glimpse of the chimneys of Jameson's salt-glazed earthenware manufacturing works which closed in 1982. Now houses.
View from the west.
... Repairs to the kilns were carried out in 2016.
