Brick Shortage in the UK and Eire

25th November 2013 Massive Brick shortage throughout the UK and Eire. Brilliant! - For the few Brickmakers left and now none at all actually making bricks anywhere in Eire - Do we put up our prices or just not discount? The smaller brick companies have bricks ex stock, the big boys have cheaper bricks but still made of clay with up to 18 weeks wait for them. Channel 4, a week ago on their nightly news, highlighted the brick shortage as did BBC South and other local programmes. The only bricks that are readily available are mini clay bricks for modelling! So should bricks be made on the Isle of Wight again ? Yes, Maybe.....
