Brick kiln, Nettlebed
The brick kiln was built in the late 17th or early 18th century. It is a bottle kiln. It is said to be the only estate kiln remaining of its period and of a local design. Nettlebed was known for producing tiles and then bricks from the medieval period until the 20th century.

The kiln is a Grade II listed building and sits incongruously between modern suburban homes.
