Bonnybridge Brand brick found in the Commonwealth of Dominica

This brick was photographed by Peter Christensen while out walking in Dominica, West Indies.

Peter states –  It is in the ground next to the Belfast Distillery. I think it must have been part of the kilns that made the cane rum back in the day.

Bonnybridge Silica & Fireclay Co Ltd, Bonnybridge.
Calder Firebrick Works, Airdrie, Lanarkshire.
Chapelhall Works, Lanarkshire.

Hepworth Ceramic Holdings plc (GR-Stein Refractories Ltd. parent co) bought the Bonnybridge Silica & Fireclay Co. Ltd in 1972, closed Bonnybridge works in 1973 and closed Chapelhall in 1980. Therefore between 1972 and 1980, GR-Stein Refractories probably continued to manufacture bricks with this trademark for a time.
