At this time I believe that Keppochhill brickworks was later renamed Fountainwell Brickworks. This is dejuiced from the OS maps I have been able to view. I have not seen a map detailing Keppochhill Brickworks but as the Fountainwell brickworks were situated on Keppochhill Road then I believe they could be one of the same. Any evidence to the contrary will be gratefully received.
