The Brickworks Museum at Swanwick, Southampton tells the story of brick making from 1897 to its closure in 1974. At the heart of the museum, and the heart of the collection, is the original brick making machinery, steam engine and related smaller equipment, such as barrows, shovels and wagons, once used at Bursledon Brickworks. We also have an amazing collection of bricks and chimney pots! The museum is run by a dedicated team of volunteers.
The Museum is open from April until October on Wednesdays and Thursdays, 11am until 4pm. There are also regular special events and Sunday Steam ups, plus children's events in the school holidays. For full information on our opening hours, events, facilities and services, visit our website - https://thebrickworksmuseum.org/
The museum is located on Swanwick Lane, Swanwick, Southampton SO31 7HB.
