A recent visit to Hampton Court Palace proved to be heaven for the brick geek but hell for the rest of the family. With so many architectural treats, Hampton Court is a visible timeline showing the development of brick over the past six hundred years. From the 2″ Tudor brick to massive blocks of clay used in the Kitchen Garden. Georgian Soft Red Rubber Imperial bricks with lime mortared joints to more modern Victorian additions in a classic clamp fired brick.
The history at Hampton Court is not just the Monarchs, Lords, Ladies and Gentleman, it can be seen in the craftsmanship produced by the real people living in the real World.
