2.
Row of five tenter posts. Probably C19. Monolithic posts, rectangular on plan,
each with socket for iron hook. One post has lost its hook; all but one have broken
tops. As part of the cloth-manufacturing process, lengths of cloth would have been
stretched out to dry between these tenter posts and others, now removed. It is
unusual to find any such surviving posts, although the existence of many tenter
fields is known.
