Scope and Content Inchcoonans Tile Works, Errol, Perthshire This works was built to manufacture agricultural drainage tiles, but also made plastic-clay bricks, and probably also pantiles for roofing. In 1976 it had two round downdraught kilns, one rectangular downdraught kiln and a small Hoffman brick kiln. This view shows the rectangular downdraught kiln. In this type of kiln some air is admitted at the top of the kiln to complete combustion of the fuel. The pipe on the left admitted air, preheated by waste heat, to reduce fuel consumption. The roof over this kiln is an unusual feature. This kiln was oil-fired and made drainage tiles. The works stopped making such tiles in the 1980s, and was re-equipped to make facing bricks.
