North Yorkshire brickmaker nominated for four awards at brick Oscars

The York Handmade Brick Company has been nominated in a number of categories in the prestigious 2021 Brick Awards.

York Handmade, based at Alne, near Easingwold, in North Yorkshire, is up for the awards following the company’s role in the new library at Magdalene College, Cambridge; the restoration St Albans Cathedral in Hertfordshire; and the brand-new Valentine House at Allostock in Cheshire.

Magdalene College is nominated in the Education category, while St Albans Cathedral is shortlisted in both the Craftsmanship and Public categories and Valentine House is in line for the Individual Housing Development award.

These national awards will be presented at a ceremony at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in the heart of London’s West End on Wednesday November 10.

York Handmade Chairman, David Armitage, said: “We are particularly proud to be involved in these three fantastic projects this year, all of which have been shortlisted in the Brick Awards.

“Huge thanks are due to the management team and employees at York Handmade for their imagination, enterprise and hard work, which all combined to make these projects so successful and so memorable.”
