Engine Dene and the adjoining 'Brick Field' were once the site of a clay pit used for brick making in Victorian times. Brick makers were employed by the Blackett estate to manufacture bricks and tiles for use in the village. They were paid the equivalent of 4p for every 100 bricks produced and one man could make about 1000 bricks in a day. The Dene used to run down to the Wylam Iron Works and much of it was left as landscaped open space when the housing estate was built.
