So it seems this Brick of mine may not have been made in Derby but Normanton, Yorkshire. Although I collected it from the Normanton, Pear Tree neighbourhood of Derby. Not far from the old Normanton Barracks that was demolished in the early 1980s.
This Brick itself was collected from opposite the old Brick Yard in Sinfin and then taken home to Pear Tree. Yesterday it was found and dug up from a garden path with many other bricks like it.
Was it originally part of the Barracks? It may still have been? But to be honest even it wasn’t. It still says Normanton on it. And it was found in Normanton, Derby.
I’m happy with that.
I’m a Normanton Man 🙂
