Archaeology Notes

NO64SW 122 6394 4128.

"Westburn Foundry...mid-19th century and later. An interesting and now unusual group of workshops. Probably the oldest is a 3-storey, 3- by 29- bay rubble block, with the central longitudinal bay open to the roof, thus creating galleries for light machining, storage, etc...." [See NO64SW 120]
