A bank of three kilns hidden away in trees and in poor condition with the face partly collapsed. These kilns served the output of the nearby Upper and Lower Butchers quarries. The quality of the rock from these quarries was not as good as that at Llanymynech or the Whitehaven Quarry across the A495 and consequently closure came early. Some output may have been sent to the canal via the Crickheath Tramway.
