Alverstone Brick and Tile Works, 1863 map

The Alverstone Brick and Tile Works on the Whippingham, Isle of Wight to 'Race Course' road is shown on OS maps from 1863 to 1907, the 1938 refers to an 'Old Brick Works'.

Despite the apparent size of the works, and the length of time it appears to have operated, there seems to be a dearth of information about it. It doesn't appear in the 1898 or 1911 Kelly's directories.

The only possible reference located so far appears to be in local newspapers in March 1865 with reference to the Isle of Wight Foxhounds meeting at 'Whippingham Brick-kiln'.
