    Default Hammil Brick Works - Eastry - June 2012 - pic heavy


    This place was one of my first visits back in 2010, but then I managed only 1.5 of the locamotive sheds and none of the factory.

    A year or so ago I had a chat with a chap who used to work on the site. Around the early 1900's they tried to start up a coal mine on the site, which explains the old buildings. During the war the railway was used to transport materials to the the battery's on the cliffs at Dover, hence the Nissen huts. After the war Hammil brickworks took on the site utilising the old mine buildings.

    Hammil shut down for good around 2008 after a short attempt of reviving the site in 2006.


























































    Cheers for looking

DerelictPlaces is a forum for people with an interest in the history and documentation of disused, derelict and abandoned buildings to come together and share their experiences, photography and historical findings. Our military, industrial and historical heritage is fast disappearing under the pressure of regeneration, the need for new housing, and often through simple neglect; Our aim is to document these places before they disappear entirely.
