Rowlands Gill - Whinfield coke ovens
The scheduled remains of the last working beehive coke ovens in the country. Built in 1861 and worked until 1958. There were 193 on this site and 5 + two halves have been preserved. A scheduled Ancient Monument since 1975 and restored in the 1980s. These are well-hidden and unloved although quite sound when seen in 1999.
