I genuinely have no idea what this place is & dont even know how I found it, but its quite a nice place.
I felt like Attenborough at times with the amount of undergrowth I was scrabbling through.

Im guessing this is to do with clay production but any info greatly received?
The site consists of 2 main buildings split into 2 levels both with channelled out floors & false floor over them, most of which is now collapsed on the higher side.
They both had triple openings at one end which may of been some sort of furnaces.
One has a lovely chimney at the opposite end & the other was completely open ended.
There is a side room off one of these with cart tracks & what looks like high level loading area.

There is a lovely overgrown walkway out side & various smaller buildings dotted about.
Anyway it looks like this!

The buildings you photographed were dries, you probably noticed a damaged hypercourse used in the drying the clay, it's an interesting site and covers a lot of acreage, the. Stack as a date on it, late 19th century I think, Clay dust is extremely fine, it might be good if you checked your camera. I liked your take on it,, Thanks

It definitely looks like some sort of clay or brick works, perhaps cement? Nice shots nevertheless.
