About Us

Coleford Brick & Tile has the enviable reputation of producing quality handmade bricks for almost one hundred years

Established in 1925

Coleford brickworks is situated on the site of an old tin plating works. Originally, the majority of the brickworks production was used by the prolific coal mining industry in and around the Royal Forest of Dean. Inevitably the coal was exhausted and the market for the bricks broadened to include the general building industry. Still family owned, it serves this market to this day.
