Full Description

Site of C15 kiln behind house, on ground sloping down to pond. Found March 1957 by Mr Rose digging post holes on slight ridge, pottery of C15 revealed and Basil Brown found portions of kiln wrappings. Various finds were made over the years by Mr Rose including an Early Med prick spur on field S of kiln site (1967) (TM 0225 7662), a small carved stone finial from a piscina (1966) to SW of kiln site (TM 0225 7661), and pottery, glazed and plain, found in garden and near house. During house renovation Mr Rose found an alabaster object thought to be a wing from a carved angel beneath a floor, lying in clay.
In 1964 the kiln site was re-excavated by Ipswich Museum and Basil Brown but actual kiln was not defined although much pottery, wasters and kiln wrappings with straw imprints were found - all C15. Pottery similar to that found at Pump Farm to the E - HNY 001 (S1) (S2) (S3) (S4).
