This is a rare opportunity to visit Bulmer Brick and Tile Company’s brickworks and Bury St Edmunds in the company of one of the country’s leading traditional brick-makers, Peter Minter.
Bulmer Brick and Tile Company is one of only a handful of surviving traditional brickworks in the country and was an award winner in the Historic England Angel Awards 2018. The small family business has worked on projects for the National Trust, English Heritage and Historic Royal Palaces.
On the tour participants will be able to see how traditional bricks are handmade including methods of making, drying and firing in a traditional kiln.
You will look at and discuss the conservation and repair of historic rubbed and gauged brickwork.
The day will help professionals to specify and oversee work in the correct manner, and will also be of interest to the enthusiastic amateur.
