Brickslips.co.uk always looking to reclaim bricks
Our purchasing team here are passionate about bricks and no product wets their appetite for dusting off the cheque book more than reclaimed bricks.
For us to be able to offer a consistent and trusted product the reclaimed bricks we purchase have to be of outstanding quality and large enough volume.
This is for a number of reasons, one being that their age and history may have compromised the brick making them unable to be cut into brick slips. The size and structure of the reclaim bricks also have to be able to withstand the forces exerted during our manufacture process.

Olde Victorian reclaimed bricks and The Grand St Leger
Our Olde Victorian Red Blend Brick slips have been one of the most desired brick slip which we have produced. These brick slips were cut from reclaimed bricks that came from the historic Doncaster Blood Stock following its demolition.
The original stables had been home to the World’s most elite and well known race horses and were a part of the Doncaster Race course complex. With over a million bricks having been reclaimed from this historic site we were very fortunate to be able to obtain the entire parcel of bricks.
Once we salvaged the reclaimed bricks a new Blood stock was built within the grounds Doncaster Grand St Ledger Race Course. You can see the Olde Victorian Red blend brick slips featured in this exemplary case study of the Linkedin office
