Inspired by the extremely popular Life of Clay exhibition earlier in the year, join urban design specialist Alastair Brook for a tour of some of Bristol’s most fascinating brick-based architecture.

Find out how bricks from the Cattybrook Brickpit in South Gloucestershire transformed the architecture of Bristol. Discover why the ‘Bristol Byzantine’ style which produced exotic decorative warehouses for the burgeoning industrial and commercial economies came to dominate in the latter half of the nineteenth century.
