Bursledon Brickworks: A History of Bricks Short course
Bursledon Brickworks: A History of Bricks
This half-day course will begin with a brief introduction to the history of brickmaking, using examples from the museum archives.
This will be followed by an introduction to the old factory followed by a tour of the building complex. The tour will include a demonstration of hand brickmaking – the most common method prior to the twentieth century industrialisation of the process.
The Brickworks Museum is the only steam driven Victorian brickmaking factory left in the UK. Most unusually it was saved still in its original state – the men who worked here in the 1970s were working in almost exactly the same way as their great grandfathers.
Now a museum of bricks and brickmaking, it not only celebrates the old factory itself but the wider history of bricks in the UK.
