CLEAN AND GLEAM
At one time you would find Bath Bricks in every home. The history of these domestic scouring blocks, made from mud deposits from the banks of the River Parrett, is unclear, as is the reason they came to be known as Bath Bricks. Nevertheless, at its peak, this industry was producing some 24 million 'bricks' a year. They were to be found not only in the households and workplaces of this country but also throughout Europe, the United States and many other parts of the world. The bricks were a vital item in homes, factories, on board ships and in the stores of every regiment with pride in its turnout. The bricks were manufactured from a unique mixture of silica flint, lime, sulphur and clay deposited in the form of a slimy mud along a short stretch of the Parrett above and below the town bridge at Bridgwater and Dunball. As each tide brought its deposits up river to meet the sediment flowing down, about one inch of the flinty slime would be added on the edge of outer bends where the slower rate of water flow aided the sediment build-up. Scouring bricks were being made in Bridgwater well before the end of the 18th century and the names Axford and Sealey are linked with their early manufacture. By 1896, some 25 batches existed to trap the special slime mixture and occupied 2,560 yards of riverbank, often severely hindering navigation. Later, processing the slime into scouring blocks became more concentrated with 10 manufacturers in the 1920s and John Board & Co Ltd emerging as a major producer and dispatching large quantities of Bath bricks over its own wharf. To trap the sedimentary slime in the river, 'slime batches' were constructed at suitable points and consisted of a bed of brick rubble projecting from the riverbank and provided with low sides to encourage settlement. When the deposit had reached about four foot it would be dug out and deposited on the riverbank to allow the elements to wash out the salt content. During better weather periods, the slime mixture would be taken to a simple horse- worked mixer and then extruded into six- inch balls, the job often done by lads or women. The balls would pass on to a moulder for pressing into bricks and then be turned out on boards to dry. High-temperature firing would follow a few days later and itself take four to six days, Board & Co using a high-capacity updraught kiln to process large quantities at one time. In the language of the trade, slime 'pitched' in the 'batches' and was shaped in a 'pugging mill' and then 'obstricked' into round balls before being pressed into moulds using a 'striker'. After firing came a surface trim with an emery wheel and final wrapping in strong paper. Broken or rejected bricks were ground into a bulk powder and some even used in local housing projects. Loads of Bath bricks featured prominently in the barging activity on the River Parrett. In a regular cycle, coal was moved from coasting vessels to brickworks, then slime moved to a processing area and the final product then taken back to Bridgwater for shipment. 'Bath brick will be found to be the most effective and economical polishing material. It is superior to metal polish and does not contain acid or alcohol injurious to metals' stated an early advertisement.House Cleaning Pleasure with Electrolux Products, circa 1975 - Advertising Postcard
