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 a side-tipping narrow-gauge skip wagon, preserved at the entrance to the works as a memento of the use of such wagons to move clay from the claypit to the works. This works stopped making drainage tiles in the early 1980s, and turned to making facing bricks, changing its name to the Errol Brickworks. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
