The Pluckley Brick Company has been estabished to produce handmade wood-fired bricks from Weald Clay, dug from the site of the former Pluckley Brickworks in Kent; these bricks are a specialist vernacular product ideal for both conservation and new build across the Weald from Kent to East Sussex, West Sussex and South Surrey.
The authenticity and beauty of these bricks is the result of meticulous research by the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, in Virginia, USA.
We produce both metric and imperial bricks as standard. We also produce bespoke bricks of every size and type for conservation and new-build.
We've put together a quick visual guide to historical wood-fired bricks; these precedents should help you when specifying bricks for your project.
