Full Description

The Inworth Tithe Map of 1839 shows a cluster of fields three of which are known as Potters Row Field (nos.109, 121 and 306) and one as Pot Kiln Field (no.170). These take their names from a row of buildings known as Potters Row which front the Maldon Road and include the Ship Inn. Field walking was undertaken by J Cotter in the field directly behind the Ship Inn and Potters Row in 1987 and 1988. There were significant quantities of peg-tile wasters and glazed brick fragments which was almost certainly kiln debris. There were also large quantities of medieval and post-medieval pottery which included kiln-wasters and glazed peg-tile with pot-stacking impressions. The post- medieval kiln appeared to be under the carpark of the Ship Inn since a layer of pottery wasters and ashy material could be seen in the bank along Maldon Road. <2> <3>
