The brick kiln was built in the late 17th or early 18th century. It is a bottle kiln. It is said to be the only estate kiln remaining of its period and of a local design. Nettlebed was known for producing tiles and then bricks from the medieval period until the 20th century.
The kiln is a Grade II listed building and sits incongruously between modern surburban homes.
A lot of the expansion into the Stokes area is composed of office and business properties.

This is just to the west of the Grand Union Canal and is accessed by a footpath as The Coy Carp is reached. A path then passes along a wooded causeway through Pynesfield Lake before eventually reaching Old Uxbridge Road - see https://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/6163154

There were once two villages: Bix Brand and Bix Gibwyn. Bix Brand's original parish church of St James is a small Norman building in Bix Bottom, about 1 mile north of the village.
It has a nave, chancel and several Norman lancet windows. Later additions include the Perpendicular Gothic east window and another Perpendicular window in the south wall.
In 1874 the architect John Gibson completed the village's new Church of England parish church, closer to the centre of the village, also dedicated to St James.
The old church was abandoned in 1875 and became ruined and overgrown. Scenes from the 1971 Tigon British Film Productions film The Blood on Satan's Claw were filmed there.
Funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund in 2015 has stabilised and preserved the ruin.
