West Mersea Brickworks.
Clifford White & Co.

This is now the site of Rushmere Close. The view is looking southeast, Broomhills Road would be upper centre. The river and Bradwell can just be made out on the horizon on the right.
The row of bricks in the centre have been burned, but the other bricks are clay still drying out before firing. The bricks in rows on 'hacks' or 'hakes' and covered to protect them from the weather.
The kiln was off to the right - it held about 30,000 bricks - enough to build a pair of semi-detached houses.
