Bauxite

Found near Morpeth,  Northumbria by BW.

Unidentified maker but I do believe that the bauxitic clay will have been mined by the Ayrshire Bauxitic Clay Company. The best quality of this clay was sent to a subsidiary, namely Henry Foster at the Hotspur brickworks in Backworth near Newcastle.

The find location would suggest this may be a brick manufactured with Scottish clay at the Hotspur Works, Northumbria, England.
