SK5941 : Bramblewood Estate

taken 10 years ago, 3 km from Carlton, Nottinghamshire, Great Britain

Bramblewood Estate
Bramblewood Estate
Built on the site of a former brickworks. The ground level would originally have run through from where the photograph was taken to the houses on the horizon, giving some idea of the amount of material that was extracted to make bricks. The whole of this hilly area to the east of Nottingham is basically a large lump of clay in the form of soft mudstones and siltstones. The pub on the estate was built round a steam engine which powered the presses and other machinery. This engine has since been removed to the Wollaton Industrial Museum.
