Brick and Tile Museum, Bridgwater
Discover the history of the brick and tile industry in Bridgwater. On the site of the Barham Brothers former works , the core of this museum is the town's only remaining tile kiln. Demonstrated inside are the methods and processes involved in making the impressive variety of bricks, tiles, terracotta plaques and other wares that create the ‘look’ of Somerset towns like Bridgwater, Burnham and Glastonbury.
The Brick and Tile Museum is free for schools to visit. Because of its limited space, we can only accommodate one group (maximum 35 students) in the museum at any given time. School groups are welcome to come and lead a self guided visit during the museum's opening hours.
