The works were owned by the Ironmaster William Dixon of Govan. It is believed the brickworks were operational pre-1854 and were managed by Allan and Mann, St Enoch’s Square, Glasgow. (Note – SBH – Were the Mallsmire Fire Brick Works and the Red Clay Works on the same site or neighbouring?) c.1854 – Brickworks established?…
