HERITAGE & CONSERVATION

Years of experience enables us to sensitively match  traditional brick types and blends

BINSWOOD HALL

 

A unique blend of two machine-made and one handmade brick types were blended together to create this stunning match for Binswood Hall in Warwickshire. Northcot supplied over 200,000 bespoke Binswood Hall blend facing bricks and 22,000 special-shaped bricks to match the existing architecture.

NORHAM GARDENS

 

An extension and complete refurbishment of a Grade II listed house in the North Oxford Victorian Suburb Conservation Area. To help the client return the property to its former splendour Northcot Brick provided an excellent match using a bespoke blend of two different handmade bricks. With 70 percent Nortchot Plumstead Antique and 30 percent Northcot Plumstead Orange, this subtle combination is now called the Northcot Northam Garden blend. Created using age-old 'benchmould' handmaking techniques, these bricks have a natural quality that makes them almost indistinguishable from the originals.

MARSTON'S CHIMNEY

 

Marston’s brewery in Burton-on-Trent, is the spiritual home of British beer. The Victorian brewhouse boasts an impressive grade II listed industrial chimney, which is a well-known local landmark Restoration of the chimney required 9 metres of new brickwork, specially matched to the original Victorian structure. For this Northcot created Brickfield Antique, a bespoke blend of handmade brick with subtle red tones, light texture and a weather worn appearance that matches the original brickwork. .

THE ICE HOUSE

 

This Eighteenth century ‘Ice House’ can be found at Croome, an 750 acre National Trust estate famous for its stately home and extensive grounds, which were Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown’s first major landscape design.  In 2007, The National Trust set about restoring the Ice House to its original splendour. Northcot Brick was approached to develop a new brick type, Packwood Rural, with which to rebuild the original dome and porch to exactly match the original.
