Tomnahurich Clay Field, Inverness

Below – 12/02/1852 – Inverness Courier – Tomnahurich Clay Field, Inverness. A field of very superior clay for brick, tile or pottery work has been found upon these lands close by the shipping place of the canal ( Note – SBH – It is possible this clay field was never exploited. Tomnahurich Farm is only a short distance from the Mile End Tile Works but they appear to be on teh other side of the canal. It is not thought they are one of the same)

Below – 1868 –  Map showing Tomnahurich Farm. It is thought the clay field mentioned in the 1852 article above will be situated somewhere between the Caledonian Canal and the Parlimentary Boundary marker.
