Visited with PCWOX, shortly after our fail at the first site the same morning. Place is a nice mooch, loads of random stuff left, pallets with bricks everywhere.

History here (already covered by PCWOX) :
Tower Brick & Tile Company Limited have 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.
Selborne Bricks are made using traditional methods from locally quarried gault clay.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. Thisnon-uniformity makes a wall made from Selborne bricks far softer on the eye than onemade from mass produced, homogenous bricks.
