Dry-pressed (solid) bricks are still made in very much the same way as they were being made last century. They are a solid brick and double faced. These bricks really do have a timeless character about them. This is the type of brick you will most likely look at using if you are doing extensions or alterations to older homes and need to match the existing.
Be it an extension or a new home, one of the bonuses to using dry-pressed bricks is that speciality shapes are still made to match. Size approx. 230x110x76mm.
