Notes about this historic site

1 Immediately south west of the Studley Common Brickworks (WA7303) is an extensive clay pit. This is not shown on the 1887 or 1930 OS 1:10560 maps. This means that it was worked in the period after 1930 and must therefore have belonged to the Victoria Brickworks (WA 7302) to the south, the Studley Common Brickworks being apparently disused by 1930. The clay pit was subsequently used as a landfill and most of it is now a golf driving range.
