    Default The Old Brick works


    first off sorry i've been quite for like the past 6 months lol i've just been exploring alot working and at uni so in october i traveled to pretty much the highest point you can travel in north wales to see a few places but this was top of my list its sort of abandoned but at the same time its more of a tourist place but i thought you guys would still want to see in

    the brick works are in such a beautiful location and the scenery is just amazing anyway guys here are the photos and history the old brick works now disused Victorian brickworks which produced fire bricks, made from quartzite (silica) used to line steel-making furnaces. The substantial remains include a number of buildings and the remains of some of the machinery, but has some damage from sea erosion.

    The brickworks is in a spectacular location on the western side of Porth Wen in the community of Llanbadrig in the north of Anglesey, and is about 2 km (1.2 miles) west of Porth Llechog and 3 km (1.9 miles) north-east of Cemaes. The brickworks was established because of the readily available quartzite from the nearby quarries, a major component of fire bricks.

    Lovely little location. Looks like something from a Si-fi film
    Don't worry about security until you've been caught.
