This opobs site specialises in attempting to identify the numerous brickworks that have operated in the South Wales area over the past one and a half centuries. Essentially a list of compiled references sourced some twenty five years ago, I have supplemented the information with pictures and other ephemera which have been assembled over the last year or so since returning to my brickworks research after fifteen years of non-productivity. This site is not intended to be a definitive work on the subject, and will always be a "work in progress". Throughout I have used spellings of place names as they would have appeared at the time the works were in use; I have also used the pre-1973 County names. If you have any further information or observations on any of the works featured, or know of any errors please contact me, I'll be pleased to hear from you. Don't forget to visit the page of references to interpret the abbreviations used in the text. An alphabetical list of all the brickworks featured on this site can be seen on The Brickworks index page.
