Prenton Brick and Tile Works (off Prenton Dell Rd) #1027748

Hi,
Does anyone know of any pictures that exist of the old Prenton Brick and Tile Works, off Prenton Dell Road?
I have vivid memories of the quarry and the narrow gauge railway that took the clay up to the works, but I can not remember what the buildings looked like. I do recall a tall chimney.
As a kid, I used to play freely in that quarry and I can remember standing at the top of "cliff" watching the escavator dig out the clay below us. There were no fences and no-one ever told us to clear off. In the evening, once the workers had gone home, we would ride on the clay trucks. No loco, of course, just pushing.

Grateful for any assistance.

Ed

Thank you, Diggingdeeper.

I have a number of OS maps of various dates showing the works.
It is photos of the buildings that I am hoping to find.

Thanks again.
