A construction company had to call in archaeologists after unearthing parts of a mid 1800s kiln.

Hartlepool-based Gus Robinson Developments began work on a 30-home development at Coxhoe.

Technical manager Ellen Hagan said: “Once we started clearing the site, we discovered a lot more than we were expecting.

“We’re seeing history being unearthed on a daily basis when we come to work.”
