The photos were taken in February 2012 of the Mayfield Brickworks in Carluke. This brickworks was one of the last brickworks to make hand-made bricks in Scotland. Another point of interest about the bricks was that they were frost resistant.
Much of the history and indeed archives of the brickworks has ended up with the Glasgow Industrial Society. The brickworks were in production from 1948 till the end the end of 2011.
Further detailed information about the Mayfield Brickworks can be accessed by looking at the Canmore website. This website is run by the Royal Commission for Ancient Monuments Scotland. The survey details are very interesting and explain a great deal about how the Mayfield brickworks were run.
