    Visited with bauhausgirl. Out in the sticks in Hampshire, lies this site. The place looks small from the road, but is deceptively big when you wander inside. There are many pallets with untouched bricks on them, just going to waste.
    Some history, borrowed from Phantom Bish, thanks..
    Tower Brick & Tile Company Limited had been making handmade Selborne bricks and roof tiles at their site near Selborne since 1872. However, the company went into administration on 6 November 2009
    Information from their website:
    Selborne Bricks are hand made by craftsmen using traditional methods. Our senior craftsmen have been here for over 25 years.
    We make our bricks from extruded clay. This process confers fantastic strength and frost resistance combined with the variation and craftsmanship of a handmade brick. Walls made from Selborne Bricks are beautiful, strong and long lasting.
    Bricks have been made on the site since Roman times. The key to our bricks properties lie in the clay, which is quarried locally. It is gault clay, some 60 million years old. The fine particles in our clay contribute to the strength and frost resistance. As part of the traditional process we mix the clay with about 10% sand.

    That's it. Not the most epic of sites by any means, but I really enjoyed mooching around here for some time and it was definitely worthwhile.:)
