The Museum tells the story of brick and tile making, one of the many labour-intensive industries once found in Somerset. The core of the Museum is the only traditional brick kiln remaining in the South West. It was one of six at the former Barham Brothers’ Yard in East Quay, Bridgwater, and was last fired in 1965.

Brick and Tile Museum

Bridgwater produced an impressive variety of bricks, tiles, terracotta plaques and other wares that created the look of many Somerset towns. The kiln is a Scheduled Ancient Monument and was saved from destruction in the 1990s.
