this kiln at the Enson Works is in the range (inside the works) with only the top of the bottle
protruding through the roof
The 'bonts' are clearly visible running round the oven
around the base are the firemouths

The inner part is the kin proper. It is a round structure with a domed roof, the CROWN, and its wall are approximately one foot thick.

Iron bands known as BONTS, set about twelve inches apart, run right round the circular oven to strengthen it as it expands and contracts during the firing.
