Wirecut & Engineering Bricks
Wirecut & Engineering bricks are machine made and are a solid, hard and often crisp looking brick. They started being produced in the early Victorian times so machine made doesn’t necessarily mean modern. Batches can either be all one colour or multi-coloured, some have almost a sheen to the surface whereas others can have a crackled surface.
Also included in this category are Gault bricks (sometimes called Gaunts) which are a yellow hard faced brick often used in this area for polychrome brickwork (one notable local example being the stunning All Souls Church in Eastbourne). Many batches can be used for paving due to their high density.
