This brickwork in the middle of nowhere is a real little gem. The machines and kilns nearly look like the last employee only walked out a couple of hours ago and there is very little graffiti around. It was definitely worth spending a couple of hours here and I would not mind going back for a second visit. With the Tonedale Dye Works this is one of the best rural sites I have visited so far.

The works started as an estate brickworks in about 1872-1873 and became a commercial enterprise 50 years later in about 1933. In 1971 the site employed about 25 people and produced about 40000-50000 bricks each week, in coal-fired Hoffman kilns. Later the site became known as the Tower Brick & Tile Company, which went into administration in 2009 due to the recession.

Hope you enjoy the pics and thanks for looking...

Are their any plans to flatten this place or is it still "open" for the foreseeable future?

This place doesn't have parking nearby, only right outside which makes it very obvious.
Theres been report's of people having there car damaged when they use the layby outside.
