York Clamp bricks provide the perfect match for historic hall

An extensive scope of works is currently under way to transform an impressive Victorian country house near York.

The owners are lovingly restoring this historical property, with the project featuring new additions which are sympathetic to the traditional exterior.

Matching the original brickwork was incredibly challenging for the project team, until our brick match experts recommended the York Clamp.

Previously only sourced from reclamation, this handmade brick is a traditional 73mm imperial size and with its unique blend of reds, browns, purples and yellows, marries perfectly with the building’s existing facades, to the point of old and new being indistinguishable.
