Aldershaw’s rooves have a patina normally only associated with a bygone age. The company specialises in restoration and conservation, producing mathematical tiles, nib tiles, peg tiles and all fittings. Special sizes and shapes are no problem. Sussex Terracotta floor tiles are made in a vast range of colours, shapes and sizes and the tiles are made to look mature from the day they are laid. The company also manufactures terracotta ware and handmade glazed wall tiles and medieval encaustic tile copies. ◾ ◾ DREADNOUGHT TILES LTD Dreadnought Road, Pensnett, Brierley Hill, West Midlands DY5 4TH Tel 01384 77405 Fax 01384 74553 Email sales@dreadnought-tiles.co.uk www.dreadnought-tiles.co.uk CLAY ROOF TILES : Dreadnought manufactures the finest naturally coloured clay roof tiles using the same techniques and processes that have defined the company over its 200 year history. Coupled with this now unique facility to generate traditional natural clay colours, Dreadnought also manufactures bespoke ornamental ridges and finials as well as handmade fittings. Dreadnought generates colours through the careful control of the kiln atmosphere without the use of surface stains or coloured sands. This traditional technique delivers vibrant clay colours that look natural on the roof and blend particularly well; sometimes colour blends are the solution to match discontinued tiles produced in coal fired kilns.
