One of our favourite Christmas presents this year was a brick! Given to us by a friend who found it in the foundations of a workshop in Northumberland a few days before Christmas. It was in the base of a small foundry. Dave pulled the whole lot our, a whole skip full but only 4 of them had an F & L marking. Fenton & Lane brick works was operating in Durham in the 1880s. The place it was found in was built in 1893 so we think it's fair to say...
