The humble brick and its place in Scottish history

The humble brick is much underrated, underappreciated, undervalued and overlooked. 'Brick' is a generic term and with regards this project it stands for any clay related products manufactured at a Brick and Tile Works - bricks, drainage tiles, sewage pipes, animal feed troughs etc etc etc.

Stand up and be proud - I LOVE MY BRICK!

The search for Scottish bricks

*************************************This is a Scotland wide community based project and I am looking for anyone no matter where they live in Scotland, or the world for that matter, to get in touch if they feel they can assist in anyway whatsoever.*************************************

This site is primarily to record and detail the Scottish brick manufacturing industry.

The aim is to try and identify all the Scottish brickmakers back through the generations and to preserve a physical example of their bricks. The physical examples, will in the main, only relate to those makers that marked their bricks in a way that they can be readily identified.

This is a facet of Scottish history that has been previously overlooked with regards to its recording, but nevertheless it is a very important one. The humble brick is virtually unique in that it knits together countless aspects of Scottish history - industrial, agricultural, social, military etc. Unless these bricks are located and preserved, they will soon be lost forever.

Please look at the list of Scottish bricks so far rescued.
Click here.

If you have one in your back garden that I do not have listed as being in my possession, then please feel free to get in touch if you would like to donate it to the cause.

You may of course wish to keep your brick, in which case I would be very grateful if you could forward a close up photograph of the brick so I can add its image to the Scottish brickmark list. There are many brickmarks and variations on a theme still to be found...back gardens will be hiding many of them!

I am also looking for areas to search for bricks - so if you know of a section of coast or river bank, demolition site etc where Scottish bricks can be found then please get in touch.

If I recover bricks from a shoreline where they have been deposited to prevent land erosion then I will replace them at the time - I always carry spares in the car for such a purpose.

Brick stamped – “G Turnbull C Dykehead”

George Turnbull Company operated various brickworks including Dykehead fire clay works, and the Bonnymuir Brick and Tile Works, Bonnybridge, Falkirk. A firebrick stamped "G Turnbull C Dykehead 3/4" was seen at the Cruden Bay Brickworks, Aberdeen in 1982 and a rubbing was taken of the brickmark. This proves that Turnbull did mark his bricks. I would be interested in knowing if anyone can direct me to where I can find an example of the stamped brick as shown below or indeed any brick marked "Bonnymuir" Click here. and Click here.

Brick stamped “Edmonstone Fire Clay Works Dalkeith Patent”

Information of any description is requested with regards the Edmonstone Brickworks, Millerhill, Edinburgh possibly also known as the Wellington Brick and Tile Works or the Millerhill Fire Brick Works. In particular I would be interested in knowing if anyone can direct me to where I can find an example of the stamped brick as shown below. I am aware of only 1 such brick being in existence and it is owned by a farmer local to the old works. Please click on the following link to see the article with the information gleaned so far. Click here.

Brick of interest.

I believe these Greenhill bricks were manufactured at the Greenhill Fireclay Works, Bonnybridge.

The works appear to have started c. 1860 when Alexander and John Scott owned the farm and brickworks at Clayknowes, Bonnybridge.

The bricks were all found in the vicinity of the Greenhill Fireclay Works, Bonnybridge, Scotland. Letters are missing, reversed, upside down and angled. The one thing to note is that the letters are in the correct order as such albeith some are missing. They are all fire bricks. The 'Greenhills' bottom left appear to be a later verson and the 'G' appears out of character from the other letters but at least it says Greenhill! There are other stamps available from the same works with either a smaller font or later machine stamped versions but the names are complete on those.

My own thoughts are that this was a brick works on its last legs prior to being taken over by the Clayknowes brickworks. As such the moulds appear to have been falling to bits especially the stamp in the bottom. They probably could not afford a mould maker or joiner so the moulder probably had to repair the stamp every morning and try to get the letters to stay in place. Perhaps they were split and could not take a nail to secure them. He appears to know how Greenhill is spelt as no letters are out of order. Basically I think the moulds were in such a bad state that the moulder was happy if he managed to rig the stamp to say resemble anything that looked like Greenhill.

Featured Scottish Bricks

Most Wanted !

There are many many bricks still to trace and rescue. I am looking for all brickmarks and variations that I do not currently possess however the following 2 are being highlighted as 'most wanted' a 'Pinkie, Musselbro' brick from East Lothian and a 'Peter Weir Patent Glasgow' brick from the Glasgow area. If you find any brickmark I do not have then I will do my utmost to uplift personally or arrange postal delivery. Many thanks for your assistance and efforts to save a little piece of Scottish history.

Brick memorabilia sought

Apart from bricks themselves I am keen to save and collate all relevant and associated memorabilia connected with the Scottish brick making industry. If you are cleaning up, down sizing etc and come across any leaflets, books, catalogues, adverts, old issues of the British Clayworkers Magazine etc, on the subject of bricks then please consider me as an alternative home for them - please do not throw them out. I will consider taking anything relevant. These items will be preserved and hopefully one day become part of a National brick related database.

Aberdeen request

Aberdonian assistance sought!

Any information as to where to find any bricks manufactured in the Aberdeen area would be gratefully appreciated. I have several bricks marked 'Seaton' and 'Torry' but there will be many more out there, even if they are variations on a theme e'g Seaton 5, Seaton 20

Click here.

In particular I would love to hear from anyone that has a brick or drainage tile marked Clayhills, Aberdeen.

Auchinlee and Crail bricks sought

I would love to hear from anyone who may have a spare Auchinlee brick from near Motherwell or a spare Crail brick from Crail in Fife.

Both examples are currently AWOL from this Scottish National brick collection. Any information on these bricks will be gratefully received.

Please note this is Auchinlee spelt with a LEE and not Auchinlea spelt with an LEA

and

Brick related memorabilia

Mystery Brick of the Month – stamped “Heather”

Found in Larbert, Falkirk, Scotland. The manufacturer of this brick is unknown. The find location would suggest Scottish origins. The brick was found in a stacked pile in a garden. It was the only one of its kind among other bricks all marked Glenboig, Castlecary or Thistle which are all Scottish trademarks. I have no doubt it is from the same stable as one of the above – but which one? Click here.

Help Help! – Scottish bricks, information and areas to search are all requested.

If anyone has found a Scottish brick, any where in the world, then please get in touch. If it is abroad I would love to post a small article on my site with regards the overseas find location and any background information you may have
.
If you have found it in Scotland then please drop me an email with the brickmark details and I will check to see if we are aware of its existence. If we are not then I will add it to this National database of Scottish brickmarks. All donations of a currently unknown Scottish brickmark will of course be gratefully received. I will arrange pick-up.
.
Please also send me details of where you think I should look for Scottish bricks, old brickwork sites, foundry sites, river and shore dumps, fly-tipping areas etc etc ...all will be considered for a future visit.

Unidentified bricks

Please click on the link below and see if you can assist with any of the queries or unidentified bricks - research takes a long time so any help in this area would be gratefully accepted.

Thank you

Appreciation

Can I take this opportunity to thank everyone who contacts me with information as to where I might find bricks lying around or indeed those that actually find and put aside a few examples for me to uplift later.

This assistance is greatly appreciated and undoubtedly helps me in trying to rescue as many Scottish bricks as possible. Thank ye kindly.
