Blockley in Gloucestershire is the home of the Northcot Master Brickmakers. We have been quarrying clay and making bricks here for nearly 100 years. During that time the Northcot brickworks has produced one of the broadest ranges of bricks available, in many variations of colour, texture, size and type. These richly-coloured bricks are made by Master Brickmakers who have hundreds of years of experience between them in the skilled art of brick-making. The bricks they make are used in all types of building projects all over the country.
Northcot is one of the very few brickworks that still takes clay from the same quarry used over the centuries. That clay is thousands of years old. When fired in Northcot's traditional coal-fired kilns they produce an intense base colour and result in an exciting range of naturally-coloured quality bricks with an enduring finish.
In addition to a broad variety of handsome genuine handmade bricks, Northcot makes elegant wirecut facing bricks and wonderfully textured reclaim bricks as well as a wide range of matching Specials including bonding, bullnose, angle, cant, and Victorian old type bricks, brick slips, copings and cappings.
Whilst Northcot is steeped in the rich traditions of brickmaking, it is also a modern family-owned company that has brought the latest technology to bear on its production techniques. It observes the latest environmental standards and has been awarded ISO 14001 certification.
Added to all of this is the Northcot passion for welcoming and serving our customers and providing individual service to each of you.
Exciting new brick ranges and plenty of information to help you make the right choice.
Northcot has been awarded ‘The Best Use of Brick’ award for self-build and renovation by Build It magazine.
