Matching some colours up for the owners of this lovely Railway Station on the Mid-Norfolk Railway. It was a great day out!
Karen & Martin are restoring this with such sympathetic pride. They need to remove as much of the old paint as possible without damaging the face of the brick. Any residual ghost staining will be tinted to match the original brick colour using our earth-based iron oxide colour stains. Dyebrick does not alter the physical properties of the brick, making it ideal for their project.
We will keep you updated with their progress!
Steve Watton was back in the driving seat in his Turner Sports Car this weekend.
“The opportunity to race on the Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit doesn’t present itself very often so it was with great anticipation that the competitors lined up for the third meeting of the HSCC’s new ‘Chase Equipment Historic Modsports & Special Saloons’ series at the weekend.” Brands Hatch Race Report July 2023
The Turner Sports Car is ready for the track! I got to see it up close…and sit inside!
For more information on other cars at the track events please see the Historic Modsports & Saloons website
Boston Manor in Brentford, West London will be celebrating it 400th aniversary in 2023.
A lot of obvious new brickwork repairs needed to be blended in using sympathetic ageing techniques. Dyebrick brick tining products do not alter the physical properties of the bricks, so were ideal for the Grade I Listed building.
Camilla, the Queen Consort visited Boston Manor today to see first hand the progress of this newly renovated Grade I Listed Jacobean house. Her Majesty viewed some of the refurbished rooms and met with architects, craftspeople, apprentices and volunteers who played an integral role in restoring the house to its former glory.

Dyebrick, just like cats, are available in a range of colours!
We stand with the nation in grief on the passing of Her Majesty the Queen.
Our thoughts are with the Royal Family.
Like many around the world, we are reflecting on her memory and her legacy at this time.
Our staff will be paying their respects on Monday 19th September as Her Majesty is laid to rest.
We were dyeing repaired plasterwork to the ceilings to blend in with surrounding much older surfaces. Please contact us if you require similar work for your historic building project.

Steve Watton was back in the driving seat in his Turner Sports Car ~ ‘The Gurney Special’ at Snetterton this weekend.
A blend of our ‘Warm Orange’ and ‘Mocha’ was used for Dina and Ben’s new extension. The bricks needed to blend more closely with the original house to meet the local council planning requirements.
Our ‘Brick-Age’ product was used on this new build, to make the house match more sympathetically to the surrounding period properties.
We hope you’re staying safe and as well as possible during this time.
We would like to update you on the latest information regarding our levels of stock and ability to supply.
Although we are running on a reduced workforce, we have a good inventory level and all products listed in our shop are available.
Orders are being picked up daily by Royal Mail, DHL and UPS. We are working closely with them to ensure that there is compliance with government advice and no service interruption.
If, or when there are any changes we will publish updates on this blog page. If there are any changes after an order has been placed, we will contact you directly.
The new rule at most courier services is: The driver only gets 1 delivery attempt. If someone is not present, the order will be returned to the courier depot. It is very busy there, so the packages may return directly to our warehouse. We have no control over this.
When ordering, please consider the following:
– Delivery to a home or business address. If business address, please ensure the business has not been subjected to government closure etc.
– Is someone present all day?
– Be aware of appropriate distance / safety precautions for the driver!
Call the local DHL/UPS yourself for more information. Every day we ensure that the goods are shipped on time from our warehouse and we send you a track and trace number to track the package. From that moment on it is your own responsibility to be able to accept the order and to keep an eye on the delivery date.
Please take care of each other, also of yourself.

Richard used our Charcoal colour to produce this amazing transformation!
“Just wanted to share my before and afters. Very happy with the results. This was sprayed on.
I used the sprayer that has the reservoir separate from the sprayer so I could keep it agitated as I went.
Afterward we went over with a brush to give it depth.
The bricks have entirely too much texture to brush on which was the original plan. The brush wouldn’t get into the grooves. It looks darker from a distance but up close the orange looks reddish coming through and that’s better than what we were wanting.”
You can see more of Richard’s images on our Customer Gallery page.
Due to the worldwide pandemic we are postponing our planned tour to the USA.
As soon as it is safe and all flight restrictions have been lifted we will publish new dates for a very similar route.
We apologise to those customers we planned to meet and we will be contacting you all within the next few days.
Please keep checking our blog for updates.
We will be stopping off at numerous customer locations starting in Boston on the 15th June and finishing in New York City on 12th July. If you’re interested in a visit from the Dyebrick team to take a look at your project, then please email us using the regular Contact Us form. There is only a limited amount of time we can stop off at locations, so book early to avoid disappointment!
Dyebrick products have been used on all phases of the restoration to the Parliamentary Estate.
We had a wonderful day in Westminster. It was nice to have been invited and also to be shown where our products had actually been applied over the last 5 years!
Working at the Cambridge Museum of Technology. The Museum has nearly completed it’s major redevelopment and will be reopening to the public next week!
We have donated our materials and labour free of charge for this sympathetic transformation.
