Sussex Handmade Brick

A name synonymous with quality handmade brick production since 1896.
Located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty near Hastings, Sussex Handmade Brick create a wide range of hand-made bricks manufactured from the area’s unique Wadhurst clay, found only in the West Sussex, East Sussex and the Kent region. The clay is carefully excavated from the quarry to the rear of the brick works, meaning there’s minimal impact on the environment.

Sussex Handmade Bricks are manufactured in many styles and in a spectrum of colours. Oranges, through to reds, purples and browns create the distinctive look of this quality product. To supplement the quality standard brick production, Sussex Handmade Brick also creates specials and bespoke products. All of which are available in metric and imperial sizes.

Due to the skill of the Sussex Handmade Brick workforce, there are also a number of finishes available to the bricks, floured sand resulting in a smooth light creasing through to courser sand to achieve a heavy textured face.

While the firing techniques for the bricks have become more efficient with the use of natural gas, the traditional methods of producing Sussex Handmade Bricks have remained the same for generations.

The Sussex Handmade Brick range is suitable for new, heritage and commercial builds. With a rapid turn-around time on standard and non-standard orders, so there’s no hold-ups on a building project.
