Old industrial site off Norwood Lane
Old industrial site off Norwood Lane
A few lumps, bumps and wet hollows on rough ground adjacent to Norwood Lane. Nineteenth century maps show a brick works here, but why? There is a layer of clay here, but otherwise the whole area is dominated by gritstone - an ideal building material. No local evidence of buildings constructed of brick, so the whole site seems rather mysterious.
