Chimney stack at Baker's Pit
This is the chimney of the pan kiln, where the better quality clay was dried.
Baker's Pit is the amalgamation of several of the early clay pits of the Towednack area, including Bedlam Green, Bohemia, Little Bohemia, Georgia, Little Georgia and Polhigey. These works date back to the early 19th century. In 1868 or 1869 the works were acquired by William King Baker and Company. Baker died in 1910 and the works were taken over by the Loverings, subsequently Lovering and Pochin Ltd., only to stop for the Great War. The pit reopened shortly after the end of the war but did not get back to full production, despite an attempt to install electrical equipment. Baker's Pit passed into the hands of the newly formed English China Clays in 1932 and officially closed in 1942.
