Kiln Pond on Burnt Hill Common
Kiln Pond on Burnt Hill Common
This pond has become badly overgrown now and is difficult to pick out through the choking undergrowth and duckweed. Its name suggests that it might have been a source of clay because, although Burnt Hill has little documentary history. It seems to have been established as a brick making settlement in the 18th century. Its name probably refers to the glow in the sky caused by the firing of open topped brick kilns or brick clamps.
