Whinfield Coke Ovens

About

Whinfield Coke Ovens were built in 1861 and are a rare example of intact beehive coke ovens that were still operating in 1958 and therefore in living memory. They are currently on the heritage at risk register as a result of repeated vandalism, however they have been included in the Built Restoration project of the Land of Oak & Iron Landscape Partnership, a four year Heritage Lottery Funded programme running until 2020. The proposed works will conserve and restore the structure; the long term future of the ovens will be secured by improving access linking the structure to the walking routes through the woodland that is to the rear of the site.
