After several years of research and development, Imperial Bricks has announced a genuine replication of the original ‘London Stock’ brick.
This traditional handmade yellow brick features a strong colour with characteristic shade variations, and an authentic coal spotted face with distinctive textures.
The bricks are suitable for restoring, renovating and extending of buildings in and around the capital, as well as new-build developments.
Weathered Original London Stock is a strong-coloured brick, also available in a standard Original London Stock, and a Dark Weathered version that was created due to popular demand. All are available in imperial and metric sizing.
Jason Hughes, MD of Imperial Bricks, commented: “The Original London Stock is a blend that has been imitated, but not truly replicated, until now. It took a significant amount of development and testing to ensure the perfect coal spotted appearance which would have originally come from the waste materials added to the clay.
“It’s ideal for heritage projects and conservation areas, as well as ‘in-fill’ developments across London and is fully-frost resistant to BS EN 771-1. The new brick complements Imperial’s existing Yellow Stock and Reclamation Yellow Stock ranges.
“Our Brick Matching team are able to advise architects, developers, contractors and self-builders on the closest brick match, via our Brick Matcher app, over the phone or with samples and on-site visits.”
