Narrow gauge skip in recreation ground, Hawkwell
Narrow gauge skip in recreation ground, Hawkwell
This remembers that the field was the site of Hawkwell Brickworks, and the nature reserve beyond was where the clay was won. The enterprise closed around 1959, the skip came from elsewhere - possibly nearby Cherry Orchard Lane or Star Lane brickworks, which closed much later. The sign merely says 'Do not climb'.
