Discredited Kiln Site

The following kiln site has been omitted from the gazetteer:
Stone SP7812 (Rec. Buckinghamshire 4 (1972), 122); there is no evidence that this is Roman in date; it does not lie near any known Romano-British kiln concentration, although there is a considerable amount of stray Romano-British material from the area (inf. M. Farley).
