Grimscar Roman tilery
Or skip it and come back later.
There's a strong smell of garlic in this deep blue sea.
The map tells me I'm close, but I can see nothing obvious.
I eventually find a large flat stone, seemingly covering over an opening.
Is this it?
I try to lift it from the edge, to see inside, but a fragment comes away in my hand.
I decide to leave it alone. It feels too close to the road anyway, more likely to be a stone quarry.
I head back into the woods and suddenly become excited when I spot this stone braced pit - is this a kiln?
When I get closer, it looks like a more recent construction than 100 - 400 AD?
And again, far too close to the road.
And also right over the stream.
I make more "discoveries".
But none of these seem right.
It's now really hot.
I'm tired and the smell of garlic is now becoming a bit overpowering.
Defeated, I head back.
But then, I spy the swing.
Note the comment: "Regarding the kiln, there is nothing to see other than overgrown spoil heap."
