London Brick Company (LBC) Phorpress Bricks.
West Park, 2021
Credit: Philip Wilkinson
A collection of LBC bricks were found at the Veola Recycling Plant on Ravenhead Road. There was some repairs being made to the upper walls and these bricks were surplus in the demolition and repair.
The LBC trade-name Phorpres came about because Fletton Bricks made in Bedfordshire are pressed twice in each direction so that they are literally 'four pressed'.
