    Next to the clay preparation area is the main oven area, also these shots do not do the size of the ovens justice. They are about 100 yards long, and there are various ovens and drying rooms. The whole site was manually operated with the tiles being transported on narrow gauge railway type system with winches.

    This office seems to be where the production was managed, it was still managed manually with the wooden board on the wall being of the layout of all the ovens and all the mini metal pieces represent individual mini trolleys the tiles go through the ovens upon.

    The next area is the goods dispatch, which is an empty warehouse, but with some lovely tiled offices with some retro relics.

    There are other various works buildings around the site.

    There is the factory shop but this was a bit of a disappointment compared to the rest of the site.

    There are various small offices, locker rooms and general control rooms around the site which could supply a report in their own right!

    I could put so many more pictures, and I feel there is so much left out, but I hope this gives a good feel of a place. Thanks for reading.
