Venue History

Bursledon Brickworks was founded in 1897 by the Ashby family. The Ashbys were partners in Hooper & Ashby, successful builders’ merchants in Southampton.

The original 1897 works (the southern complex) was added to in 1903 with the addition of the northern complex. This was further extended in 1935. With the extra capacity, the brickworks was producing in excess of 20 million bricks a year. They were one of the main producers of bricks in the region.

Bricks were made during the Great War and the Second World War. Brick making was considered a reserved occupation, but production was dropped to a lower level and the Ministry of Defence requisitioned parts of the site during both wars.

After the Second World War the family business was amalgamated with the Sussex and Dorking Brick Company and in 1959 became Redland Holdings Ltd. The site closed in 1974
In 2012 the museum was awarded a Heritage Lottery Fund grant. This grant was awarded to help create a fully functioning museum.

In the height of production Bursledon Brickworks was producing 20 million bricks a year and provided employment for around 180 people including children
