Warboys Brickworks: Alfred Fuller employed his first 50 men in 1894 making bricks by hand, paying £1 per week. By 1930 over 300,000 of the famous Warboys Whites bricks were made each week. They were sold world-wide until August 1984 when the works finally closed. In 1914/18 the works were used for munitions and in 1942 torpedoes were stored in the kilns.
