Garth Brick and Drain Pipe Works was situated some 550 metres east of the village of Garth, and was served by a railway siding from the goods yard of the Central Wales Railway at Garth. A brick-built terrace of seven cottages and a post office and further cottage, on the south side of the A 483 may have been associated with the brick works. maps shows two kilns and two long buildings which may have been drying sheds.No bricks have turned up yet but I know Mike Kilner is searching high and low.
it's on the 1887 OS map but shown as disused on 1" 1st edn OS 1889.A brick kiln and clay pit is shown here on the 1905 OS map.The assets of Thomas Savin (the railway builder) were sold in 1866 and included 'a valuable and extensive bed of clay' and that 'a railway line runs into the brickyard'.A second small 'brickyard' is shown on maps from 1886 right up to the current editions.
The aerial view on 'Google Earth' shows buildings but nothing that looks like a kiln.
There was a brickworks near Dol-Guan in 1884 but it was 'disused' even then and gone by 1900.
