Perhaps itís better to let it all go. But that would leave Stewartby Village marooned in the centre of a series of clay pits without any reference to the industry which spawned and supported it. Plus it risks being dwarfed by a bland, boring modern development.

But as we walked back to the car, I was glad we'd visited the brickworks when we did. Only one press shed remained intact and it was important to see at least one building with its machinery still intact.
