"Old Bricks - history at your feet"
There is a
WWT Nature reserve situated on the western shores of
Strangford Lough, County Down, Northern Ireland. The present
lakes on the site were former brick pits and this brick is
from the old workings there. Photo and info by Richard
Musgrave & Co,
Co. Belfast primarily made stoves of all sizes for the home
or larger buildings, heating apparatus, stable fittings
& high-class ironwork. These fireclay bricks were made
to line their stoves. Found on the web a reference referring
to an advice note for the company to supply Thomas Daws of
Robertsbridge with pipework, bricks & fireclay for a
stove in November 1898. Info & Photographed at
Bursledon Brick Museum by Martyn Fretwell.
