18th-century iron foundry found in England
Published on October 26th, 2011 | by Admin0
The foundry buildings are shown arranged around three sides of a courtyard with three large roadside buildings and the iron-monger shops to the north.
Excavation revealed evidence of two large rooms, one which would have been used as a workshop and was probably later lived in. The other room was close to the furnace and chimney and used as a casting floor for moulding cast iron goods.
