Anniston

This brick was found and kindly donated by  John Robertson.

It is stamped Anniston to both sides.

Anniston Brick and Tile Works , Inverkeillor c. 1863 – c.1971

Local lore has it that  the colour of this brick meant it was made from Inchcoonan clay brought to Anniston, “after Anniston bought Inchcoonan” as “real” Anniston bricks were much redder, normally flat and unnamed.
