Random road trips to the middle of nowhere because we can, always results in urbex! This time the industrial goodness that is Selborne Brickworks.

This place is packed with quite a bit of machinery still considering how long the place has been shut and certainly made for some awesome photos, with some cool graffiti dotted about too from whoever I can assume is “Just Matter” 🤷*♂️

Some short and brief history on the place followed by the all important pictures

Handmade brick and roof tiles were made here since 1872 but sadly went into administration in 2009. The owner of the brickworks in 2016 was found guilty of damaging/destroying the resting/breeding place of a wild animal of a European protected species.

Nice one, still lots to see although it looks like some of the kit has been removed in the past year or two. The area in your first shot was packed tightly before.

Has the wood work stuff always been there? I did wonder if someone had been using it for something or other, loads of large tree stumps and wood chippings everywhere

Just had a look at my shots (from 2015) - no sign of any timber-related stuff, so I guess that's more recent?

Hmm must be more recent then, no idea how anyone could have got in there to work on anything as its still blocked off to vehicles.
