Clay Pit near Dorey's Farm
Clay has been extracted in this area for hundreds of years. Extensive Roman era kilns have recently been uncovered near Swineham Point and Josiah Wedgwood apparently sourced his clay from this area as well. Clay extraction continues now with modern methods. Note the colours of the exposed strata and the patterns made by the scoops.
