A fascinating piece of industrial archaeology. The chambers are about 300 yards long. The surroundings are well explained via interpretation boards. I would say oK for supervised children 6+. Could get a bit muddy so wear suitable footwear. FREE

A really good place to visit. I was glad that you can still gain access to the inside of the kiln. I was pleased to see almost no vandalism.

Trail was good, good esplanation of everything. Mind you though: after the rain it's a bit wet all over :)
