An 1874 book entitled ‘Handbook to Carnoustie’ states on page 4 – ‘He (George Kinloch who bought Carnoustie Estate from Major Philip for £11,000 in 1808) also opened a brick and tile work on what was subsequently known as The Terrace, there being a small bed of clay in that locality. But all trace of this has disappeared and a fine garden now occupies the site’.
Another 1874 book entitled ‘Carnoustie and its neighbourhood’ – Robert Dickson states on page 51 – ” There were brick and tile works from 1866 to 1880 on the raised bank west from Lochend. But the bed got exhausted and is now covered with a young plantation”.
