Ings Yard tile works
To the left is the partially reconstructed kiln, at the back is the mill house where the incoming clay was prepared before being formed into tiles. The small building is the so-called 'night lobby' provided for the night shift who would have to look after the kilns while they were being fired and to the right is the kiln chimney. Mill house, night lobby and chimney are all Listed Grade II.
William Blyth Ings Yard tile works
This is the western yard of the company.
Like the yard at Hoe Hill, it contains all the elements of a traditional tileyard, including the mill house, drying sheds and kilns. Most of the buildings on the site have listed building status in recognition of their importance in representing a complete traditional process.

Situation in June 2010
Although not currently in production, the site has not been abandoned, and some remedial work was being carried out. I received various reports of what might be happening, but these were insufficiently definite to put in writing.
Listed Buildings and Structures
Listed buildings and structures are officially designated as being of special architectural, historical or cultural significance. There are over half a million listed structures in the United Kingdom, covered by around 375,000 listings.
Listed status is more commonly associated with buildings or groups of buildings, however it can cover many other structures, including bridges, headstones, steps, ponds, monuments, walls, phone boxes, wrecks, parks, and heritage sites, and in more recent times a road crossing (Abbey Road) and graffiti art (Banksy 'Spy-booth') have been included.

In England and Wales there are three main listing designations;
Grade I (2.5%) - exceptional interest, sometimes considered to be internationally important.
Grade II* (5.5%) - particularly important buildings of more than special interest.
Grade II (92%) - nationally important and of special interest.

There are also locally listed structures (at the discretion of local authorities) using A, B and C designations.

In Scotland three classifications are also used but the criteria are different. There are around 47,500 Listed buildings.
Category A (8%)- generally equivalent to Grade I and II* in England and Wales
Category B (51%)- this appears generally to cover the ground of Grade II, recognising national importance.
Category C (41%)- buildings of local importance, probably with some overlap with English Grade II.

In Northern Ireland the criteria are similar to Scotland, but the classifications are:
Grade A (2.3%)
Grade B+ (4.7%)
Grade B (93%)
