    Blimey Sal, you'll be able to build your own 'urbex house' soon at that rate! ;)

    It gets addictive Foxy. Saw someone collected bricks on the other forum I'm on, and thought it silly. Then when we started turning them over and having a look, did I realise that nearly every colliery had it's own brickworks. THen found those 3 at Annesley, so always searching out different ones everywhere we go.

    I must admit that I've wanted to collect them myself after we had the thread on here about bricks, but I can't really see me carrying them home in my backpack! I've got a piece of terracotta tile from a Roman Villa though, if that counts!

    Thanks guys 'n' gals, it is a shame another village has lost its heritage with the illegal demolition of most of the site.
