Is clay soil in your garden or allotment the bane of your life? This is local clay at its best!
Local clays are suitable for brick and tile making and Penn was a centre for tile making between 1332 and 1390. From about 1350 most of the churches in and around Buckinghamshire were paved with Penn tiles. Penn tiles were often decorated with flower or animal patterns and were used to make elaborate floor patterns and designs.
This tile was found at Yonder Lodge, Penn in the 1990s.
