Sutton kiln?

Dr John sent me this, allegedly of a field kiln by a small stream near Sutton. Does anyone recognize the location?

John Redpath thinks this may be the location, spanning Sutton Beck at the bottom of the Ellers...

From John:

"The bridge is quite interesting, has had a lot of stonework removed from both ends possibly used when the driveway was created from the Ellers Road circa 1900, the little rectangular gap is the top of full sized door frame, I did dig right down to expose it all hoping to get inside
but it led to nothing as bridge had been filled in from the top, the stream also has had lot work done to the streambed flag stones laid over quite a large area and a weir constructed, almost forgot the other side of the bridge has four bricked up windows."
