Heathfield

Found in Broxburn by George Liddle.

This is a length of glazed sewer or water pipe that has been halved and was sold as electric cable or other like cable conduit. George remembers seeing some of these in situ in the ground. The bottom half is laid out and the cable run along the length and then the top have is used to cover it all.

Heathfield Fireclay Works, Garnkirk.

Equally, they are seen in catalogues advertised as salt-glazed channels/gutters for directing water into manholes etc. They would sit flush with the ground surface and channel the water to the desired destination.
