Works disused by 1900, ruinous 1999. This is all that remains of Paxton Brick & Tile Works - the early Ordnance Survey map shows a further large, rectangular-plan building to the NW, clay pits to the E and SE and 'Brick Field' to the SE. A relatively rare building type, this block is particularly notable for its brick-lined chambers and polychrome dressings. The NMRS photographic records refer to the individual chambers as 'Newcastle Kilns'. 'Tile Cottage', originally associated with the works, is set to the SE.
