Abstract:
[NX 080504]. (Interim report). Excavation proved the existence of a charcoal-fired blast furnace, suggested by documents as working by 1683. A magnetic date of 1740 + 10 for the final firing was obtained. The bosh and hearth survive, and part of the stack was cleared. Further work is required on the bellows and casting floors, the wheel-pit, and the races. A roasting kiln for the preparation of ore was excavated, the first British example to be examined. The documented forge is yet to be locatcd. D W C
