Claughton Brick Works

Announcement Date: May 21, 2016

SURFACE VISIT – Our visit to view production of bricks to meet demand in the UK resulted in a most enjoyable day. Thanks are due to the management for arranging viewing of the vast production areas, situated by the A683 just beyond Caton.

Having previously walked from the quarry on past visits, we had followed the 26 gantries which carried the 44 shale buckets, but to now view the works held the interest of the NMRS group of 11 all afternoon. Returning to the Conference Room for further recent history, the questions showed the group’s enjoyment of the visit.
