A high quality, orange/ red blended handmade brick with a textured appearance and some creasing on the face. Available in both imperial and metric sizes; genuinely handmade using traditional techniques, and frost-resistant to BS EN 771–1.

These bricks were historically used throughout middle England in the ‘shire counties’ to build farmhouses, barns and period country properties. They are perfect for matching old brickwork in high quality renovation, restoration and conservation projects, and are also ideally suited to new build developments.
