Bulmer Brick and Tile‘s brick flooring is unique and worlds apart from many of the thinner, imported floor tiles widely available. They are made with a ‘double struck’ finish to give a smooth surface on the face and can produce a buff/pinky colour similar to the old Suffolk Floor Bricks no longer in production, which cover the floors of so many of our local beautiful old Churches, cottages, dairies, and hallways.

Their range of ‘standard’ flooring includes:

  • Red clay 12 x 12″ pamment
  • Buff clay 12 x 12″ pamment
  • Red clay 9 x 9″ pamment
  • Buff clay 9 x 9″ pamment
  • Red clay 6 x 6″ pamment
  • Buff clay 6 x 6″ pamment
  • Red clay 9 x 4 ½ x 2″ floor brick
  • Buff clay 9 x 4 ½ x 2″ floor brick

They have also produced octagonal pamments with brick infills and again, any variation on size can be considered. Their brick floors have been used in St Pauls Cathedral (crypt), St Georges Chapel and Windsor Castle.

Bulmer bricks are made from the finest London Clays, dug from their seams almost continually since Tudor times.

All Bulmer bricks are hand made, using traditional methods of making, drying and are fired in a coal burning, down draught kiln. This helps to give the distinctive finish that blends so well with the originals. The process takes time – something to consider at the project planning stage.

They are a small family business continuing the traditions of brickmaking dating back to the Middle Ages.

Their facings and specials can be made with almost any texture, from coarse veined to smooth with some 150 different sizes of facing and a range of over 5000 special shapes, including all standard plinths, squints and copings, and extends to purpose made chimney bricks, terracotta, mullions, jambs, floor bricks, pamments, decorative plaques, garden edgings and a full range of rubbing blocks.

In most cases Bulmer Brick and Tile Co can work from drawings, photographs and samples, but they can come to site for a consultation/survey if required – charges reflect time and travel.
