Somerleyton Brickworks
A view of the brick kilns.
From about 1780 Somerleyton bricks were made here until the works closed in 1939. Some notable buildings of Somerleyton brick include York and Liverpool Street railway stations and a Belgian Royal Palace. Evidence of the buildings and kiln, now demolished, and the pits where sand was dug, abound. The 22 cottages at the end of the track were built between 1854 and 1875 for the workers and the staithe was constructed in order to transport the finished bricks via wherries.
This kiln dates from 1900.
