Come and be amazed at the authentic sights, sounds and smells of the last steam-driven Victorian brickworks in the UK. Make your own brick, get close to the massive brick making machines and see how the men used to run 15 miles a day in the big drying sheds.
Special steam-up Sundays are held once a month from April through to December where you can see the machinery all working. An inexpensive family outing with lots of brick related activities for children of all ages.

More Winter Tasks
Published:16th Feb 2017 by Carolyne Haynes
Another task that we have been undertaking this winter is to sort out the Rowlands Castle Samples Building bricks. These were on pallets that were slowly breaking and so we have put them onto brand new ones and at the same time had a good look through what we have stored. These are some of the specials that are clearly marked but some are not so easy to identify. Constructing the building again is going to be a labour of love but well worth it. We just need some very keen brick layers who fancy volunteering!
