BRICKMAKING

 

David Cufley gave an illustrated talk to the Society in November on brickmaking, with some pictures showing barefoot children carrying lumps of clay, life was harsh for all workers, often a family laboured together.

With a map indicating previous brick kilns in west Kent, he explained the number of brick maker's kilns was dictated by the requirement for building houses etc, often created just for the duration of the construction.

Interestingly there was a kiln for bricks to build the Eynsford viaduct.
