  Lawns Brickworks from Lawns Farm.
The Lawns Works stood on what is now the playing field with 21 men producing bricks and tiles until 1954. Owned by the Laithwaite family pre 1900 and later the Simpkins and Gaskell Families who also owned Wigan Brick Co Ltd. A collapse of the kiln brought about the closure.
