H.G. Matthews is a family run brickworks producing traditional hand-made and machine-made bricks, in Buckinghamshire England. The
business was founded in 1923 by Henry George Matthews and is still
run by his decendants today.
Like most industries brickmaking has seen production concentrated
in fewer and fewer, but much larger factories. Smaller brickworks
have closed by the hundred since the second world war. This has led
to a sad decline in local character and distinctiveness of buildings,
with rustic bricks being replaced by those that are mass produced.
H.G. Matthews has managed to thrive despite this trend
as our consistant service and quality have meant that our bricks have
always been in demand. We have retained our traditional skills and techniques enabling our bricks to be used with confidence in high-end new builds and also in the conservation sector.
By choosing our bricks for your project, you will add
value to the building and create something with distinctiveness, character
and beauty which will be admired for generations to come.
