Brickfield Brickathon!

Words by Katie Bunnell

When John Osborne was working at clay country’ s Wheal Remfry Pit, nr Fraddon back in the 1960’s he could make up to 900 bricks in a day working in a pair. John’s approach to skilled physical work still amazes us 60 years on: his energy and love for brick making are an inspiration!
