Not ... Just Another Brick in the Wall!
J. C. Blythe & Sons - King George V - Made in 1912 - Washington Station
The side wall of the Washington Arms (2002). Thanks to photographer Keith Cockerill for contributing his excellent picture.
Keith informs me that there are 6 or more such bricks in the wall. (20th July 2017)
[ The above brick was manufactured in the same year that RMS Titanic sank. ]

The pond was created by clay extraction for the Brick Works.
