London clay produced the traditional 'Yellow Stock' handmade brick, used extensively during the capital's building boom in the 18th and 19th centuries. Colours vary from a dark gold to a pastel yellow, with black flecks from the ash and clay.
London Stock is a high quality yellow handmade imperial brick with a traditional and distinct coal spotted face, representing a true reproduction of the authentic period yellow London bricks.
Our London Stock bricks are handmade using traditional and authentic methods unchanged since the 15th century. The bricks are hand thrown in to their moulds, giving each brick a unique character with distinctive textures known as ‘creases’ or ‘smiles’. When laid, these bricks present a wonderful complexion and organic feel that derives from their inherent variety.
Yellow London Stock bricks are synonymous with house building in the UK’s capital in the 18th and 19th century. These bricks replicate that look and feel and are suitable for construction projects where the building or structure need a period / historic look and feel appropriate to London and the Home Counties.
Because these brick are handmade using traditional methods, they look like historic London bricks and could pass as originals. This means these reproductions offer a cost-effective alternative to expensive reclamation bricks.
Based on traditional Imperial dimensions these bricks are ideal for matching period brickwork for extensions, heritage projects and conservation areas, as well as a popular choice for new build developments.
These bricks are F2 rated for freeze thaw performance and are BS EN 771-1 certified.
London Stock can vary from dark gold to light pastel yellow with flecks of black coal spotting.
Each brick offers a unique finish with differing creases / smiles that result from the handmade production process.
We’ve selected yellow clays that closely mimic London and Home Counties clays used in brick making for these yellow bricks.
