由於來自亞洲其他地區的廉價產品的競爭，該窯在 70 年代後期停止了工業式運營。 2014年被評為三級歷史建築。然而，自2017年以來，政府改變了周邊地區的土地用途，目前正在距離30米興建公屋。由於房屋建築潛在破壞的不確定性，這使龍窯面臨倒塌危機。周圍開放空間的喪失也使活化變得更加困難。
Constructed in the 1940s, the Castle Peak Pottery Kiln is the only complete and intact dragon kiln remaining in Hong Kong. Craftsman Leung Sum, who started making pottery in Shiwan, China since he was 8, took over the kiln in 1951. The kiln produced a variety of household ceramic items.
Dragon kiln, a traditional wood fire kiln with a long brick chamber, is one of the best and oldest technologies for firing ceramics at high-temperatures. Invented in China during the Han dynasty, they are still in use in many countries. In China, the most famous kilns are located in Jingdezhen. Not even the most modern and expensive electric or gas kiln can reproduce the beautiful, natural glazes on ceramic wares as a traditional wood fire kiln.
Due to the competition from the cheaper products from other parts of Asia, the kiln ceased industrial operations in the late 70s. In 2014, it was rated as a Grade III historic building. However since 2017, the government changed the land use of the surrounding area and is currently constructing a public housing estate within 30 metres. This has placed the Dragon Kiln under direct threat due to potential danger of colapse by the housing construction. The loss of the surround open space also makes the revitalization much more difficult.
