Geocache Description:

Be aware of mugglers when SATS is open!!

Sju teglverk og minst 15 potteri var i drift i tiden 1782 til 1997. Det siste teglverket som var i drift var AS Gann Graveren som kom til etter en fusjon mellom Graverns Teglverk og Ganns Potteri &Teglverk. Keramikkavdelingen ble nedlagt i 1982 og teglverket stengte 21 desember 1997. Produksjonslokalene ble ombygget og renovert og i 2000 åpnet Maxi Storsenter i de gamle lokalene til Gann Graveren
