Come along to see the last surviving example of a Victorian steam-driven brickworks in the country. Bursledon Brickworks was founded in 1897 and offers a fascinating insight into our industrial past. The site has been preserved by a loyal group of volunteers and is now an accredited museum. Once a month the machinery is all steamed up and turning again, there are all kinds of activities on offer especially for children. For further information please visit the Bursledon Brickworks website .
The Brickworks Museum is open Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday from 11.00 - 4.00, from April to October. Car parking and refreshments are available. We are also keen to hear from volunteers and enthusiasts who can help.
The museum is located on Swanwick Lane, Swanwick, Southampton SO31 7HB.
