Clay Tiles : Peg Tiles

Clay peg tiles, consist of a plain tile with holes for pegs, instead of the later nibs. They have been around since the 12th century and historically have a wide distribution, occurring in most places where clay is found, but their use is now most evident in the South East. Kent peg tiles are slightly smaller than other peg tiles.
