Bottle-oven in snow


The snow has come back yet again, though this time as but a light layer of icing-sugar... so to speak.

Strange about the frequency of the bouts of snow. It seems like we have had five or more separate snow-falls this winter, just when I was beginning to get used to having one or two at most every winter.  Still, snow is better than hail & gale.

What you see in the photo is an old pottery-making factory with its own kiln (bottle-oven) stuck in the centre of it. 
Of course, the bottle-ovens are now all listed, and none is actually working, so when this building was turned into offices, they had to keep the kiln in the centre, just as it was!
