Carfin Colliery Brick Works, Carfin, North Lanarkshire


(These work may have been connected in business with the Jenny Lind Composition Brickworks – Source – Survey of Scottish Brickmarks)

12/01/1889 – Airdrie and Coatbridge Advertiser – Glasgow Western Infirmary. The secretary begs to acknowledge, with thanks, receipt of the following contribution from Carfin Coal Co, Carfin Colliery and Brickwork, Motherwell – £2 2s.

1893? – Survey of Scottish Brickmarks states these works were owned by the Carfin Coal Company. (Note – SBH – However, the works are not marked on the 1897 map albeit the Jenny Lind Brickworks are. The survey also suggests that Steetley Ceramics were owners in 1981 but I think they may be assuming that the Carfin Colliery Brickworks and the Jenny Lind were on the same site which they were not albeit they were close. For further research)
