THE WEST BRITON, 19 July 1875


There is a great deal of activity in the works near Calstock. The Phoenix Fire Clay Brick Works are now sending off a cargo of fire-bricks and clay to Cronstadt. It appears that the bricks are much approved in Russia, and many cargoes have already been sent to that country. The West of England Company are executing large orders for bricks for the dock-yard for Cardiff, and other places. The East Cornwall Minerals Railway has lately been much engaged in the transport of coals to the interior, bringing down to the quays bricks, clay, arsenic, and other things, which are sent away in large quantities. Much of the arsenic is sent to Antwerp.
