Somerset Brick and Tile Museum
|Somerset Brick and Tile Museum|
The museum is dedicated to the Brick and Tile Industry of Somerset.
It incorporates the last surviving 'pinnacle kiln' in Bridgwater, which dates from the 19th century, and has been designated as a Scheduled Ancient Monument and grade II* listed building. It used to be one of six at the former Barham Brothers' Yard at East Quay. It was last fired in 1965, the year that the works closed.
Demonstrated inside are the tools, methods and processes involved in making a variety of bricks, tiles, and terracotta plaques.
