Broadlie Brickworks, Dalry, Ayrshire This was the first of three common-brick works in the vicinity of Dalry which were built to make pressed-clay bricks from the coal-measure clays – blaes – deposited as waste during coal and ironstone mining in the 19th century.  This works was built at a time when rendered brick construction was taking over from masonry construction. The works closed in 1992 owing to a decline in demand for pressed-clay common bricks.
