Jacksons Brick Works Levenshulme
« on: 13:33:43, 01/07/20 »
Hello Folks. Iím new to the Forum but it looks like an interesting place to reminisce on old times. Just a query if anyone on here remembers the old Brick Works In Levenshulme in the 1960ís. Nearby was the Jacksons Clay Pit where they got the clay for the Bricks. Iím actually trying to locate any of there stamped bricks with the inscription J and AJ on them. A shot in the dark I know lol. Thanks....

Hi ,Wayne 1,are you a brick collector?.
I worked for William Higgins @Sons,they did'nt stamp their brick but also made Salamander's which I think was trademarked.

Hello Lozflan. Thanks for your reply. No Iím not a collector but I lived not far away from the Jacksons Brick Works in Longsight in the 1960ís. We used to play on the Claypit there and have happy memories of the place. Iím actually after a couple of the said Bricks as a reminder of my younger days.
Where was your Factory in Manchester? I do realize my quest to find any of these is going to be a Miracle.

Wayne1,I was thinking,a collector or building an extension,haha.
Higgins bricks had afactory in Broughton St and North St,both in Cheetham,the latter worked the clay pit which became known as "Barneys". That I think was shared with Jackson's.
When all the clay was worked out,Higgins moved to Risley/Culcheth. I worked in all 3.

Hello Lozflan. Thatís really interesting and I bet you could tell some stories of the days you worked there. In those days you really would of worked for your money. Until recently I never imagined there was so many manufacturers of bricks. I was born and brought up in Longsight and then moved to Edgeley in Stockport in my early 20ís. I now live on the Isle of Man and have done for the past 20 years. I get back to Manchester now and again as I have family there. I donít really miss it though as itís changed so much in my opinion and certainly not for the better.
