This brick was found in Ravenhead near Thatto Heath and was originally made at the Upholland Brick & Tile Works, Upholland, Wigan (Established in 1870). The works is part of the Ravenhead Sanitary Pipe & Brick Co. Ltd based in Ravenhead St Helens (Established in 1767 as a pottery). The company was formerly Horn and Kellys, however in May 1874, the duo's partnership was dissolved when Mr Horn appears to have taken over the business and by 1875 it has been registered as the Ravenhead Sanitary Pipe and Brick Co.
The Upholland Brick and Tile Co Ltd was taken over in 1908.
