The Medieval Kiln

This fine example lay well hidden under the Memorial Hall for many a year.

Now exposed enough to view through a new window in the side of the hall, it is accessible for all to see.

The entrance to the kiln

To find the kiln go to the left side of the hall and through the fine sculpted entrance and follow the footpath. You will find information boards explaining all about the kiln and its use.

Information Boards

A really good time to view the kiln is during the morning as the window is less likely to be reflecting any bright sunlight at this time.

Viewing the kiln through the observation window

Dated to some 500 years ago, the kiln really does give you an idea of how different Newport must have been all those years ago.
