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

CPD open day Friday 18 May

Most people arrived at 10am on a cold overcast day, starting with a tour of our factory and a short trek to our redundant bottle kiln, which is listed on the industrial buildings register.  Some of the architects had a go at throwing a brick under the supervision of Sean, Jamie and Phil, our trio of makers.

Lunch was served at 12.30pm followed by a talk on conservation in brickwork by Simon Hay, CEO of the Brick Development Association.

It would appear to be a great success according to the positive feedback received via email
