London Brick has been the original choice for professional builders since 1877, with its distinctive ‘frog’ design making it easier to cut, handle and lay.

Used in approximately 23% of England’s housing stock, it is made from raw material millions of years old, the excavation of which has changed the landscape, created thousands of jobs, helped in the construction of some of our most recognisable buildings, and even created a wildlife reserve.

London Brick has long been associated with economic re-generation. From the construction of the railways in the 19th century, to meeting the post-war housing crisis head-on, the brand has been integral to UK industrial strategy throughout its lifecycle.

Increased production saw output reach 16 million bricks per day after the Second World War. Today, London Brick is produced almost exclusively for the residential renovation, maintenance and improvement (RM&I) market.

The styles and colours in its range are designed to match the five million homes built using London Bricks, as owners look to improve and extend their homes.
