Our visit to the Ibstock brick factory, Leicester included a tour of the factory, the CAD drawing office and a visit to the test laboratory to watch bricks being crushed . We saw the mass production of standard bricks and also hand made specials and were able to experience the journey of the material from quarry to finished brick.
The next stop was Coventry Cathedral by Basil Spence: a repository for works by artists such as Graham Sutherland, John Piper, Jacob Epstein and Elizabeth Frinck.
