Handmade Traditional Sanded Plain Tiles 

Our traditional sanded plain tiles are handmade using our alluvial clay along with traditional methods and skilled craftsmen to create a truly unique tile resembling the characteristics and individual marks of the maker.  
Rich colour tones, sanded textures and shapes that cannot be replicated by machine result in this tile type not to sit in total conformity but in gentle undulations recreating what would have traditionally been found and used on a centuries old farmhouse. 
Produced in three colours, Autumn Orange, Antique Red and Chestnut Brown, they’re made to make your project look truly unique. 

Autumn Orange 

A genuine handmade tile offering subtle shades of colour. This tile is made with a soft sand creating a gentle texture. This tone of colour is often used throughout South East England. 

Antique Red 

A genuine handmade tile offering variations in texture and colour. This tile is a rich red colour designed to suit new or older properties. Every tile will weather naturally to create a more mature appearance as every year passes by. 

Chestnut Brown 

A genuine handmade tile with its dark tones of browns and variations in texture gives an instant aged look, perfect for new builds and restoration projects. This tile is well suited for matching in with existing buildings and surroundings.

*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.
