Handmade Bricks and Natural Building Stone

Lambs offer a unique selection of handmade bricks, gauged arches and Natural Wealden Sussex Sandstone for quality building restoration and new build projects.

Since Victorian times Lambs craftsmen have passed knowledge down from Father to Son and established a reputation for excellence. Lambs manufacture handmade bricks, arches and specials in a myriad of colours, textures and sizes supplied from our own brickworks.

Lambs extract natural Wealden Sussex Sandstone from their own Philpots Quarry in West Hoathly, which is the sole remaining source of the material. This geological formation is also referred to as Tunbridge Wells Sandstone.

At the Quarry Lambs craftsmen are expert in shaping this unique beautiful natural stone and other natural limestones and sandstones into walling and stone masonry to fulfil any requirement.

Lambs materials are very versatile, and if you do not see a product to meet your individual needs on our website, we may still be able to help.

However small or large your project needs are, please call our Sales Teams for bricks 01403 785141, or for natural stone on 01342 811311.

An individual service to suit you

Whether you are restoring an historic building or designing a new building in an authentic style, Lamb's can assist. Since Victorian times we have offered our customers an unrivalled selection of authentic facing bricks and complementary stone, terracotta and faience. Today we also offer an efficient and flexible design service to help define and meet your needs, both precisely and promptly. Combining traditional manufacturing skills and the best of modern technology, Lamb's are able to deliver materials to exceed your expectations.

The service we provide

Ordering your materials from Lamb's means you can ensure they are sympathetically matched and compliment each other beautifully. Whether your requirements are large or small, intricate or straightforward, you are guaranteed the same high quality service. To make sure we know your exact requirements, we will visit your site and survey the materials needed. We will then provide a report, quotation and samples. On receipt of your order, we produce full-scale working drawings for your approval prior to manufacture. The process is fast but thorough. And - at least for our customers - we ensure it is painless.

Design

Taking the strain

Our design service relieves you of the task of surveying details and providing working drawings. So, whatever your perspective - architect, civil engineer, developer, builder, or member of the public, - Lamb's make life easier. We have embraced modern technology to enhance our design process. Gauged arches, special bricks and carvings are designed with the most up-to-date CAD packages. Where complex elevation detailing is involved we often provide 3D camera projection drawings for approval. Such technology benefits our customers who can better visualise the finished product.

Manufacture

In the blood

To ensure their authentic characteristics, most Lamb's products are made by hand. Working on detailed products requires considerable skill and patience. Hence, our brick and terracotta makers serve a minimum five-year apprenticeship. Clay manufacturing runs in the blood and some families have worked with the company for three generations. The accumulated knowledge of just nine members of our production team totals more than 150 years.

The burning question

We fire our products in a number of customised and controlled ways, depending on what is required of the final item. In general, our bricks are fired in a clamp, the oldest method of all, dating back to the Pharaohs. A clamp is a stack of moulded and dried bricks set for burning that does not have any permanent structure. Clamp firing gives Lamb's bricks their authentic appearance and characteristics.

Delivery

Down to the last detail

Lamb's are proud of their products and services and carry that quality through to delivery. Products are carefully packed to ensure they arrive in perfect condition. Our drivers are skilled in handling trays of, for example, intricate mouldings. When required, products are individually labeled to facilitate their placement.
