Found by Eddie McLean at Glenboig.

Glenboig Union Fireclay Company, Glenboig, Lanarkshire.

Alternative brickworks include:

  • Glenboig Star Fireclay Works, Glenboig, Lanarkshire.
  • Glenboig Fireclay Works, (Old Works) Glenboig, Lanarkshire

The reference to Bigelow on this special undoubtedly refers to the Bigelow Arch Company of Detroit, USA. Bigelow-Liptak Corporation was originally incorporated in 1927 with the merger of the Bigelow Arch Company of Detroit and Liptak Firebrick Arch Company of Minneapolis, as a direct subsidiary of A.P. Green Refractories Company.  Bigelow-Liptak of Canada was incorporated in Toronto in 1940, as a subsidiary of the Corporation.

Below – This example was either manufactured at Glenboig for the Bigelow Arch Company of Detroit, USA or manufactured on license using a Bigelow patented design. I am aware of such agreements as in the latter with such companies as Liptak.
