A number of Roman tile kilns have been unearthed over the years on the Arbury Estate, 2 miles (3km) to the south-west of Nuneaton City centre. A tile kiln was found here in 1967, and two more tile-kilns with overlapping stoke-holes were found in 1970. The earlier of these two closely resembles that uncovered in 1967 while the other was more like a pottery-kiln in design, and was apparently used to produce lightweight tegula tiles until the early-4th century.

There is another Roman tilery nearby at Griff Hill (SP3688) and Roman potteries a few miles to the north at Hartshill, near the Manduessedum road station on Watling Street.
