Lincolnshire Bricks: History and Gazetteer

DN Robinson OBE with contributions by H Healey FSA and D Start FSA Heritage Trust of Lincolnshire

This booklet was published as a celebration of early brick buildings in Lincolnshire the theme of Lincolnshire Heritage Open Days.  It looks at the different types of brick clay, how bricks are made and laid and gives a short history of Lincolnshire bricks from Roman and Medieval bricks to fashionable and common ones in use today.

The use of brick was widespread in the Roman Empire but virtually ceased in Anglo-Saxon times, except where robbed from ruins.  It was not until the Middle Ages that bricks were again manufactured in England on any scale.  The eastern coastal areas were most affected by this revival, influenced by Flemish brickmakers from the 13th century onwards.  In Lincolnshire, brick building became fashionable among the rich and powerful in the 15th Century and remarkable examples still survive.  Pre-eminent amongst these must be the keep of Cromwell's Tattershall castle, one of the finest brick structures in England.
