Coke ovens at Inkerman Farm, Tow Law / Cornsay - County Durham (UA)

Post-medieval beehive coke ovens. The management of the site was reviewed in 1998 with the involvement of Tow Law Town Council, which had a local heritage initiative. Historic England grant-aided the consolidation works, excavation and recording of finds. The initial repair programme is complete and half of the site is now open to the public. However, consolidation of the rest of the site is still required.
