Hampton Park Coping Brick, Barton Road, Hereford 24 August 2016
A 180 degree coping brick from the Hampton Park works,

A brickworks site of the Hereford Brick and Tile Company.The Hampton Park Brick & Tile Works is described in 'Herefordshire Bricks & Brickmakers' by Edwin Davey & Rebecca Roseff (Logaston Press, 2007): "it was a large brick and tile works 2km from Hereford city centre. There were adjacent clay pits, up to 5 drying sheds and 4 kilns which were extant in 1886". The book contains an interesting description of the works and operations by a Mr Eckley, who worked there in 1936 and 1937, shortly before the works closed prior to the outbreak of war. Up to D-Day the site was used by the US military and it is now a recreation ground and nature reserve.
