Clay Floor Tiles & Gault Clay Floor Tiles

Square terracotta floor tiles have been popular since the medieval period, and from the 16th century have been characterised by the large quarry tile, known as Pammets or Pamments in East Anglia, used in farmhouses. It is still popular today for a rustic look.
