I see they are re making 3" staffordshire blues  :)

and weathered imperial wire cut  :P


Lovely, you won`t be able to wall more than five courses at a time with those  :y
Less if you are making traditional lime mortar in the hope of sticking them together  ;D

though you would think ,the "new old bricks" would be a little more uniform than the 1890 originals
which vary 15mm in length  :P

So I would say brick technology  ,like cars have  moved on over the years
UNLIKE women ,fighting over petty things  :D  ;D

Yes Dave! I once thought that I understood women - then I woke up!  :D

Ron.

 :o :o :o :o :o  Both of you should be so ashamed of yourselves making such comments........now I could have a go about MEN, but I'm a lady! ::) ::) ;D ;D ;D :-* :-* ;)

That wouldn't take long, though, you see. Just ensure a suitable supply of beer, petrol and grilled meat products and we're happy. Next? :y

No, I put a coat of Unibond on it and rendered it ugly concrete:P
SHHHHH
Don't tell Lizzie ,she don't like concrete walls  :y
You can make them some interesting colours with the dyes available now. Dark blue rendered wall anyone?  ;D
why not go the whole hog clicky linky   ;D

or pattern imprint when wet ,and dye to look like bricks

or brick slips

or knock the wall down and rebuild it in staff blues (I have a stock of originals here 1 a pop + P&P) ;D

Just why would anyone WANT to build walls in Staffordshire blues?

The worst brick ever to use, they're ugly and difficult to wall and their only redeeming feature is their water resistant properties.

build once , admire handywork , check pointing in 100 years time   :y
when the wall will probably say " go away ,i'm fine and going nowhere " in a harder than nails voice  ;D

Love the look of them, personally. Then again, I am a big fan of concrete brutalist architecture of the kind Lizzie would probably like to see torn down (like most of Southbank Centre)..

Indeed, it has always looked ugly, and still does.  One for demolition! :y

But good, honest and reliable like the goods that were once produced in the factory of Britain, and in some cases still are.  You get what you see. :y
