Southwater Brickworks


"Winning the Clay, an illustrated history of brickmaking in Southwater"

The book is in A4 format and comprises over two hundred pages charting the story of how, from small beginnings, brickmaking came to play such a central role in the life of the village and why the “Southwater” engineering brick became famous world-wide.
We have brought together, for the first time, a wide range of archived documents, newspaper articles and maps, in addition to a wealth of photographs and the personal recollections of former employees.
