    Clockhouse Brickworks was a Hansons factory built on a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) near Capel in Surrey. The site lies 600m east of the Auclaye SSSI which was also a former brickworks, geologically it lies on wealden clays (Da Fuq?). It is a site for palentological and sedimentological research covering an area of 32.4 hectares. Similar strata are seen at Warnham. The factory was phased out of production during early 2009 due to the downturn in the construction industry, and a lack of housebuilding projects. Since that time it has sat disused exposed to the elements gathering dust.

    visited with @norfolkexplorer and @Storm LSF on a trip we did down south as a bit of Christmas fun
    after lots of mud and a bit of a squeeze or two we were in
    very interesting explore could have stayed a lot longer than we did but were running out of time i seem to remember loved the color scheme in here with lots of very interesting pieces of machinery

    the length of the building is very impressive and quite what these bricks were for i don't know but i have a feeling the newly made bricks would be fired on these so the heat could get to them propally or something

    i reckon this tracked the temperatures inside the kilns and recorded it on the paper
