Tyne and Wear HER(4932): Woolsington, Brick Kiln Field - Details
Woolsington, Brick Kiln Field
Brick and Tilemaking Site
An early 19th century plan of the Woolsington Estate shows 'West Bricks Nook', 'East Bricks Nook' and 'Brick Kiln Field'. This no doubt reflects the location of brick production, perhaps sited for the production of bricks for Woolsington Hall or its ranges. The lack of any indication of activity on the 1727 survey of Woolsington by John Robertson suggests the kiln was active after this period.
