John Knowle’s Mount Pleasant pipe-works at Woodville, Swadlincote was once a major employer in the area. It has now been demolished but before redevelopment the bases of a tunnel kiln and beehive kiln were excavated   Together with detailed records going back to the 19th century and photos preserved by ex-employees it has been possible to create detailed 3D reconstructions of the plant.
