History of Selborne Brickworks

Tower Brick & Tile Company Limited have been making handmade Selborne bricks and roof tiles at their site near Selborne since 1872. The company went into administration on 6th November 2009 and dissolved in August 2011.

Selborne Bricks are made using traditional methods from locally extruded clay (gault clay, some 60 million years old). They mixed the clay with about 10% sand. Each brick is handled at least 5 times during its manufacture, which allows minor
variations in shape and size that, in turn, means that each brick is slightly different. Walls that are made from Selborne Bricks are strong and long lasting and the bricks have been made on the site since Roman times.


Exploring Selborne Brickworks

Entry and exit was really easy, no interruptions and was there for about an hour. We did hear the dog next door bark for a little while but then it stopped. I have heard the neighbour isn’t very friendly and does come over occasionally but no one appeared. Parked directly outside the place. Could hear the odd car drive past so we were weary and heard a car slow right down as it went past but all was good.

There were stacks of bricks with the Selborne Stamps on them. There was a cabin which I imagine would have been an office space and lots of machinery throughout the place. I thought the graffiti on the wall amazing! We walked around outside for a bit and there's a skip on the land and other bits of machinery.

Please enjoy the photos - There's a few more in the comments! :)

Shame about the graffiti in here but you covered it well. It's a nice place. Prob not the best place to park outside. But not much parking around there. Think we walked a fair way to it.

Thank you, I'm surprised no one came in to be fair, we did drive up and down looking for somewhere else to park but I thought we will just chance it. I think we were lucky the day we did it! haha

Yeah I think you were. We see a vehicle drive in whilst in there, but they went straight out again.

Very nice report. Great coverage. Liking all the old machinery a lot, but I must say that photo over the water & its reflections is stunning.
