A tile works and clay pit were established to the north of Bournmoor Colliery (HER 4996) around 1854. There was a three fingered spoil heap to the east of the tile works. By 1895 a firebrick works had been established on the west side of the coke works (HER 4999) and the tile works had expanded to become a brick and tile works and a further kiln had been added. The spoil heap had grown considerably to cover the earlier clay pit. By 1940 the brick and tile works had been modified.
