    Arrow Penrith Brickworks - Cumbria - March 09

    These lovely ruins are just outside Penrith. The owner told me the works closed in the 1970s and it's been left abandoned and falling apart ever since. I can find nowt on the Internet about the place.

    The enormous kilns are quite cool and the whole thing looks like it was built into the cliffs and hills. The works were positioned here because of the clay pit right next door and closed when a better design of brick was created, one with holes in or something if the farmer is correct.

    A nice gentle little explore
