Clay reception and storage tank
Clay from the Horton Pit at Small Dole was pumped through twin 8" pipes as a slurry which was stored in this tank.
The clay was kept in suspension by the rotating arm.
This was superceded when the process was changed to the 'as dug' system where clay came dry from the pit by lorry.
