      Our multifunctional cast iron bricks celebrate London landmarks built using a combination of these two historical materials.

       

      This brick represents the brick arches and cast iron columns of Eastern Coal Drops; where the two materials were used together to support the railway tracks which once brought coal to Victorian London. Walk the yard today to see the care and craft involved in building this repurposed industrial structure.
