‘Barco’ Old English Pantiles  

Our traditional clay pantiles are handmade using our own reserves of alluvial clay. The natural high iron content found in the clay gives them their rich terracotta colours when fired in our traditional coal fired down draught kilns dating back to the early 1900’s. 
Produced in four colours, Natural Red, Weathered, Light Antique and Dark Earth, with natural variations in colour tones, textures and shapes they are designed and manufactured to make your project look truly outstanding and unique. 

Natural Red 

Fired in our traditional coal-fired kilns, creating a blend of deep oranges through to reds, Natural Red Pantiles will complement properties old or new. In time the tiles will weather down to give a more mature appearance. 


Our Weathered Pantiles help create an instant ‘aged’ look to your property from the moment they are laid, with the subtle addition of a slight colouring. This tile is ideal for creating an elegant finish to any property. 

Light Antique 

The Light Antique Pantile is suited for the use of older properties to help blend in with the characteristics of surrounding buildings. Using a colouring agent which when fired creates a light to dark brown tile, this process can still leave some tiles showing a hint of the tiles natural red colour. 

Dark Earth 

Our Dark Earth Pantile is deep black in colour with little variation creating visual impact to any roof; it can be used as an alternative to black glazed tiles, which are predominantly found in the Norfolk area.

*Handmade clay tiles are subject to small variations in size because of the drying and firing shrinkage within the manufacturing process. Before deciding on the batten gauge and linear coverage, the roof tiler should inspect each batch of tiles to ensure that the correct minimum head lap and side lap are achieved. Unless otherwise stated, specification and fixing guide is based on the tiles laid at minimum head lap. Tiles should be drawn from three or more packs concurrently to ensure consistency of blend.
