    A quick bit of history : Hammill Brick Ltd operated from this site at Hammill, near Eastry, since opening in June 1927.
    The brickworks was built on the site of the old Woodnesborough Colliery, and utilised some of the buildings there, although there have been newer structures added to the site over the years. Three buildings from the Woodnesborough Colliery remain – 2 brick sheds and the engine house. The brickworks closed in 2008.


    Second stop of the day and another relaxed mooch around.

    Some Nissan huts are on site too looking much the worse for wear

    Lots of patterns and stuff around but looks like they are gradually being liberated

    Quite a big shed once you get inside.
