Brick : Gault Brick, White, Cream

Gault clay when fired produces a smooth heavy yellow clay brick which was widepsread in the Victorian period. It became popular in the 18th century, particularly in the latter part when red brick fell out of fashion. They were also used as gauged brick arches. Fireclays found in china clay and mining areas have a similar appearance, often with a pinkish or orange tinge.
