Ibstock Bricks (Beare Green Factory) - Surrey - December 2018

roduction started just before WW2, after several ownership changes it ended up in the hands of its current owner, Ibstock Bricks. I can’t find an exact date that it was closed, but I’d guess somewhere in the 70/80s.
The current factory that sits to the north of the former factory continues to produce bricks and has been granted permission continue production till at least 2025. Planning permission states that they are seeking to demolish the old factory.
