Raising the roof

THIS fine old photograph can be seen hanging up in the Brickmaker’s Arms, Ridgewood, Uckfield.

It shows former workers at the Ware Brick and Tileworks which used to employ almost everyone in the locality.

The men used to make those lovely terracotta cappings that to this day adorn the ridges on many a slate roof.
