News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

At the moment I have not come across Jesse Last  brickworks. The Haine brickworks was probably the last brick maker in Thanet. Just to get technical the Haine industrial site, which is the old brickworks, is in Ramsgate, it`s also half way between Haine roundabout and Westwood roundabout. There was also a brickworks at Westwood. This area is now occupied by Staples. There were more than fifteen brickworks in Thanet before breeze blocks came into fashion. Most bricks were air dried and only good for internal work.

I was chatting with my dad  yesterday and he was telling me about a brickworks near the (then) Haine crossroads at Broadstairs called Jesse Last Brickworks. Has anybody heard of this Company?
