Found by Steven Pattison in the Paisley area.

For long enough the manufacturer of this brick remained a mystery and it still does to an extent. From the letterhead below (Kindly supplied by Mike Chapman) it appears this is a product of Ibstock PLC.

Ibstock had many brickworks all over the UK. So was this particular stamp used on all of their brickworks or a particular one?

What do the arrows represent?
