Pembrokeshire medieval pottery kiln conservation gets funding

Kiln excavation

Work to protect the only remaining intact medieval pottery kiln in Britain has been awarded £170,500.

Newport Memorial Hall, in Pembrokeshire, was given the money by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Their project includes plans to create a visitor attraction which is expected to open in the summer.

Project manager Siobhan Ashe said she hoped the "fascinating and rare communal artefact" would provide greater understanding of our heritage.
