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. This non-uniformity makes a wall made from Selborne bricks far softer on the eye than one made from mass produced, homogenous bricks.

Offices were locked tight, but looked interesting through the windows.
