Clamp firing is a traditional brick-making method, which is operated from our Freshfield Lane site in Danehill, Sussex. Our large open-sided sheds, each hold approximately 1.5 million bricks that are constructed by hand by an expert team of people in a distinctive pattern that allows them to fire correctly. When the structure is complete the bricks are ignited and allowed to burn naturally. Each clamp takes around 6 weeks to fire and cool.
Our bricks have a timelessly authentic, warm and earthy feel, enabling them to sit in harmony with varied architectural styles. This results in products that are high in demand with architects, self-builders and premium housebuilders. Clamp fired stock bricks have always been a long-lasting, sustainable building material, and you can rely on our bricks to stay beautiful long into the future.
