Bintulu's abandoned Brick Kiln Chimneys

This abandoned Downdraught Brick Kiln with two 9m and one 5m high chimney
seems to have been left idle for a few years,
its kiln roof had already collapsed
even with a protective zinc roof over it.

Brick is now much sought after for house construction in rural areas
in Sarawak with escalating wood prices with timber running out
due to over logging and land clearing for plantations.
It's a real big lost as these virgin forest just can't be replaced overnight,
it should have been done in a more sustainable way instead
so that there is always some left for our future generations .




The three chimneys.



The entrance of the Kiln.



This is what is left of the kiln.



There are 3 fire holes.
