Nettle D 4

Found by Ian Suddaby on the site of the old Manuel Works, Whitecross.

This example is not in my possession.

  • Milnquarter Fireclay & Gannister Works, Bonnybridge, Stirlingshire

Ian states – A very unusual shape, it’s a circle brick but it’s also an end arch brick as it tapers from 2¾” to 2⅜” as seen in the second photo. I might do my quick experiment to check the circle diameter and see what the 4 means. D means dense.
