Location Downham
County Lancashire
Grid Reference SD 789444
Date of visit 19 August 2003

At the side of a minor road just outside the village of Downham lies this marvellous example of a small intermittent kiln which must have served the adjacent farm and possibly a few neighbours. Set into a bank behind a gate with a small area for carts to load in front it is in remarkably good condition.
