Somerset Brick & Tile Museum
The Museum tells the story of brick and tile making, one of the many labour-intensive industries once found in Somerset. At the heart of the Museum is one of the only traditional brick kilns to survive in southern England. It was one of six at the former Barham Brothers’ Yard in East Quay, Bridgwater, and was last fired in 1965.
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.
Open Tues 1000-1600
Entry is FREE. The museum is run by a charity so please consider donating £3 per person.
