News and Projects

Published:7th Oct 2018 by Carolyne Haynes

Now the museum is fully accredited we are being approached by more museums and private collectors to accept their collections. This is helping us move towards becoming the Museum of Bricks and Brickmaking as now we can display bricks from all over the UK. 

We are slowly creating a display in our upstairs gallery to show them off. It is amazing how varied they are in size, colour and what is written on them. This brick came yesterday with about fifty others from Nuneaton. The next step will be to start finding out more about the individual brickworks.
