The blue bricks of East Langton
The other day I was wondering around East Langton, the village where this blog's hero J.W. Logan lived for many years.
As well as the cottages named for his daughters, the village hall he built and the former cottage home for the children of men injured on his works, I noticed a surprising quantity of industrial blue brick used to repair walls in the village.
I suspect that is what happens when a settlement enjoys the patronage of a major railway contractor.
