Found Newmains, Morningside, North Lanarkshire.

Any ideas.

Unidentified brick, however, the find location suggests Scottish origins but …

This brick was found in an area with identical shaped, coloured and style bricks and all with the brickmark on the sidewall … Regenn and Gwersyllt and Penwyllt

The brickmarks of all 4 bricks appeared on the side of the brick.

This W W is a very similar brick and was found nearby

This brick could simply be a product of the North East of England from the Cleveland County.

A further long shot is that this brick is something to do with Cleeves Western Valleys Anthracite Collieries Limited, Wales which one would assumed made bricks although I cannot confirm this – and the spelling needs some explaining if this is the case!

Amalgamated Anthracite Holdings (AAH) originates back to 1892 when Cleeves Company was formed in Wales, owning about 7,000 acres of land. It merged with two other local companies, Gurnos and Gellveeidrim, to form Amalgamated Anthracite Collieries Limited.)
