Roman industrial features at Heronbridge civilian settlement. Excavations in 1930-31 on the east side of Watling Street roman road revealed various stone buildings, including a 25 meter north wall of one building with a paved floor, which was probably a workshop or shed. This building dates to around 100 -160AD. To the north and south are four furnaces or corndrying kilns. North of the first stone building was a second. The wall of which overlaid earlier industrial features. This building was probably later in date than the longer building to the south and was used up until the mid 3rd century.
