of Sevenoaks, Kent

Also known as Greatness Brickworks.

Established by Basil Jones in 1932.[1]

By 1936, sixty men were producing 65,000 sand lime bricks per day. Sevenoaks Brickworks had another works half a mile down Greatness Lane producing burnt clay bricks and tiles. The Brickworks, latterly owned by Ibstock Brick, closed in 1991 due to the lack of demand.[2]

Note: There were several other brickworks in Sevenoaks.
