Chalfont Red

Handmade Bricks

The clay for these bricks comes from Chalfont St. Giles at the old Froghall Brickworks. Anthracite is not mixed with the clay which results in plain red bricks with little colour variation on the surface. Colour is dependent on firing temperature and they vary from a light orange to a plum purple.

In order to ensure consistent and even colour blends all our bricks are re-blended by hand after being removed from the
kiln. This gives greater consistency of colour with our standard ranges and also enables extremely accurate matching to existing brickwork.
