Here are some photos of the kiln and other features recently excavated at Jackfield...
(scroll down a couple of posts for background info).
The first three photos were taken at the end of last week, the last two were taken today.

A brick-lined clay storage
pit, and the saggars
which have been excavated from it.
These photos were taken today, and show progress on excavating the centre of the kiln, and also exposing the rest of the outer hovel wall...
Here is the newly-discovered part of the kiln, showing the outer hovel wall
and the well-preserved floor inside. You can also see the quarry tiled floor
of the abutting building in the foreground.
