10.On the rough ground east of the Pinfold we come to the site of Benjamin Davies' Pottery {1781}. Today no trace of its building remains.


11-12. The site of two more potteries lie just off the main trail and on private land. These are the Brookhill Pottery and Benjamin Cottrel's Pottery in Pinfold Lane. Recent excavations have uncovered foundations of pottery buildings, many fragments of 17th and 18th century pottery and evidence of clay pipe making.
