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 Hoffman brick kiln, one of the smallest examples of its type in Scotland. This type of kiln can be operated continuously. with bricks being loaded, fired and unloaded at the same time in different parts of the kiln. This kiln was replaced in the 1980s by two more modern kilns to make facing bricks more economically. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
