The giant brick has the appearance of a ‘Redac’ brick with additional text saying ‘Welcome to Huncoat’.

Huncoat Gateway, Hyndburn

Newground helped Hyndburn Borough Council to welcome people to the village and define its boundaries. Historically there was a brick works in the village, producing Redac bricks, which employed local workers. It was felt that as this was such a big part of village life and history it would be nice to represent this in the scheme in the form of a ‘Giant Brick!’

The ‘Giant brick’ was constructed from standard size bricks (matching in colour to the Redac brick) with the front course having the lettering/pattern inscribed.
