Mike Waddington’s Brikin’ It Talk | Thursday 28th Feb

Waddington’s put together this brilliant “Brickin’ It” evening to highlight Jersey’s rich and lost heritage of brick making. Guests learnt about the central part the industry played in the crucial shipbuilding and cod-fishing industries in the nineteenth century. Millions of locally made bricks were used as ballast on the ships heading to Gaspé, Canada, and then used there for construction. They managed to find a brick made by Charles Copp in Five Oaks in c. 1862 and had it shipped back from Paspébiac in Canada and unwrapped as part of the celebrations to promote the idea of reviving the use of brick on the Island.
