Eden Brick and Tile Works, Guardbridge, St Andrews, Fife. Canmore 10/04/1873 – Fife Herald – Burner (first class) of experience wanted for a new brick and tile works shortly to be opened at Guardbridge near St Andrews. Must have a complete knowledge of all the branches and be able, if required, to take general superintendence….
Found Guard Bridge.
This was found on the shoreline immediately behind the site of the old Eden Brickworks.
Found alongside many Eden bricks, broken drainage tiles and pantiles.
I have no doubt this would have been made at the works and dumped on the shore as waste/broken items or perhaps when the site was levelled.

Below – Slightly ‘oval’ tile. It is broken and as such its possible original length would have been 14 1/2 ” or longer x 2 3/4″ x 3″
