    Default Brickworks and Lime kilns In South Wales.


    A picture taken during the heydays of the Brickworks in the late 1800's and early 1900's



    And one of it now, you can just make out the remains of the brick ovens on the right of the picture.



    Other general pictures around the place.

    Remains of the four brick ovens.














    Note the roof span on the engine house.







    Four of the lime kilns.

    That roof span is amazing. Gorgeous brickwork and the lime kilns are great. Nice one, MM. :)

    fantastic pictures

    the picture of it in its heyday reminds me of the old Dunaskin iron and brickworks at Dalmellington in Ayrshire
