Glengarnock Calder

The Scottish Industrial Archaeology Survey published a report in 1985 entitled ” A survey of Scottish brickmarks. During the compilation of this report in which the survey officers visited working and derelict brickworks sites, many items of interest were donated or found. Many of these items were thereafter donated to the National Museum Scotland. The item below is one of these items.

This is not in my possession.

Possibly manufactured by the Calder Fireclay Company, Coatbridge for the Glengarnock Ironworks, Ayrshire.

Below – Found by Tucker Kennedy at Ardeer, Ayrshire.

A large special. This is broken both sides and bottom and stamped Glengarn.

(Note – SBH – I suspect this should read Glengarnock and is possibly of the same origins as the large special above).
