Exhibition – Brickmaking in Emsworth and the Local Area

Brick Making

Brickmaking in Emsworth
Before the widespread use of the internal combustion engine brick making was a localised activity. Seams of clay suitable for making bricks run through Emsworth, Rowlands Castle and Hayling Island and they have been exploited since the Roman period. Often brick making was seasonal and incorporated into the annual farming cycle. This exhibition explains the traditional brick making process using photographs from the Pycroft brick making business on Hayling Island. The source of the bricks used to construct the Museum building is identified.
