Scope and Content Inchcoonans Tile Works, Errol, Perthshire This large works was in operation by 1863, and made agricultural drainage tiles as its main product, but also produced bricks, and probably pantiles for roofing. It had both round and rectangular kilns, with associated moulding shops and drying sheds. This view shows the works from the entrance, with three round downdraught kilns in the centre and a rectangular Hoffman brick kiln on the right. Note the stockpile of clay drainage tiles in front of the kilns.
