Title: Rosedale glass furnace. Discovery of an Elizabethan illegal kiln.
Post by: chopin-liszt on September 22, 2021, 04:07:49 PM
I learned today that there is a "secret" glass kiln, from Elizabethan times which was discovered and moved from its original location to Ryedale Folk Museum.
Furnaces were very heavily taxed in those days, so illicit kilns sprang up.
