4/40 Coke Ovens
Bank of 'beehive' coke ovens, now overgrown and partly ruinous, c.1850. Built
basically of brick but with a sandstone rubble retaining wall at the lower
(east) end. A rectangular block, built up and into a slight slope, measuring
roughly 30m by 12m and containing (originally) two rows of six kilns each;
those on the north side are more badly damaged. Each kiln is circular in plan
with a diameter of about 4 metres and is composed of a domed vault about 2.5
metres high, built of a single skin of yellow/brown bricks, laid in header
bond, and now vitrified at the inner end. (Some of these bricks have been
stamped with the initials WFB). Originally, each kiln appears to have had a
round-headed ventilation hole at the front, a flue at the back and a circular
charging hole at the top.
History Built by an as yet unknown firm and superseded by the coke ovens
established immediately to the north by the Towneley Colliery and Brickworks
Company, which began production in 1874.
A large and relatively well-preserved example of a now uncommon type.
