Reclaimed bricks are bricks that are rescued from old buildings and cleaned up.
Their edges are typically worn and irregular and they may have remnants of mortar due to their original use.
Found all over London and the home counties a full yellow brick that sometimes has a black fleck on the face coursed by the peat content in the clay which turns black when the brick was fired, The colour often varies from a very bright yellow to a dark mustard yellow.
Introduced around the 1960's these bricks are smaller in size and more uniform than the original London Yellow Stock Bricks. However the colours do represent a good likeness to the original stocks but the size of the brick is around 10mm - 20mm shorter in length.
Predominately used within the London area and in smaller numbers in the outskirts, used more often for backing-up or garden walls rather than face work. Colours approximately 60% red and 40% yellow within the pack and often some black fleck.
