Celebrating 150 Years of Brickmaking W.H.Collier Ltd.

W H Collier Ltd, manufacturer of traditional Handmade Facing Bricks, Fireplace Briquettes & Kits

Handmade bricks have been produced on our site at Marks Tey since 1863 carrying on a tradition first introduced by the Romans when Colchester, our nearest town, was their capital.

We use our own locally dug clay to produce most of the range of bricks, special shapes and fireplace briquettes. A locally sourced red firing clay is brought in for our new Aldeburgh range of bricks.

All of our Handmade Bricks are genuinely "thrown" by hand in the traditional way.

Handmade bricks from W H Collier have been used locally, in Essex, Suffolk and Nationally.

Sites have included, Sussex University, County Court building in Kingston upon Thames, Hospital in Swansea, Museum in Glasgow and numerous private dwellings throughout the UK.
