Manchester Bricks, Staunton On Wye



New Country Developments had big plans for a new-build housing development out of Hereford. The project was taking place in Staunton on Wye, a very small parish in the west of Herefordshire. It was made up of 10 new-build homes; three of which being 3-bed bungalows, another three being 3-bed houses, and the remaining four being 4-bed houses. The developer had previously been let down once by a major brick manufacturer during the second phase of the process. As a result, they had to return to the search for a provider, exploring the market for a brick similar one from before.

Our Area Sales Manager, Cliff Hughes, visited their site. He presented them with samples to make sure they blended in with other plots. The final decision was made that development would move forward making use of our Newlyn Heritage Blend (65mm). This brick is one of our handmade bricks stock with a red, creased appearance. Each brick contains a wholly unique appearance thanks to the white and dark shades present throughout.

Manchester Brick Specialists act as a reliable and efficient partner in builds across the UK. We aim to work side-by-side with housing developers (big and small) to transform and equip your projects. Our aim is to help you be prepared for whatever may come your way. As seen here, other brick distributors may fail to deliver as a partner. However, we aim to remain by your side, supporting you in your mission and making your vision a reality.

The completed estate came to be known as Bliss View. The ten high quality homes ended up equally as stunning as the initial CGI mockups New Country Developments started with. Our bricks were the perfect match, complementing the other plots and allowing the Newlyn Heritage Blend to shine. The circumstances leading to our involvement may have given the developers a feeling of worry, however we are glad we were able to get things back on track and deliver the results we did.

This brick I wanted is seen across London and the South East and has a history dating back 300 years, meaning I had a match for the historical context of the build.

In terms of kerb appeal the final product is a characterful brick-built design that is consistent across each build.

The Mottram Multi provided the bungalow with an anchor in local heritage and respected the history of Bubwith.
