Brick : Red Stock & Orange Stock

Red and Orange Stock bricks have always been a popular choice for good quality work since the 17th century and were also in favour in the late 19th century for their regular and traditional appearance. Richard Norman Shaw favoured their use and they are found in Bedford Park and other Queen Anne style architecture.
