Thread Name: Yellow Clay
Subject: RE: Yellow Clay
Well, one from Newcastle, one from South Shields and one from Durham have no idea at all what Yellow clay would have been used for. General consensus is that making fuel bricks would be a bit like, 'scuse the apt expression, taking coals to Newcastle. The other explanation seemed more likely at first but, seeing as we now know donkey stones were made from stone, it is now in doubt. I would still favour it though.

I think we need to take a leaf from Charlies book - Maybe put it down to a piece of Music Hall nonsense. Can I feel a Fylde workshop coming on Stu? :-) May see you there!

Cheers
