Description:This photographs shows some of the intermittent coal fired brick and tile ovens at John Caddick & Sons Spoutfields Tilery. The tilery was on the corner of Brick Kiln Lane and Shelton New Road in Cliff Vale. A large marl hole behind the works provided the heavy clay, Etruria Marl. The area has been redeveloped for housing, the marl hole grassed over but the names Brick Kiln and Spoutfield are still used as street names. The chimneys are alongside the ovens. There are flues going underground from the beehive to the chimney. The vents on the crown (oven dome) are open. In front of the oven are stacks of ridge tiles.
