Handmade roof tiles often have a unique pitted surface that will not be present on machine made tiles. Sure, the machine can have these surface pits added to mimic the handmade look, but they never look truly authentic as the pitting will be uniform and when laid out together, they will all look identical.
Handmade roof tiles from Heritage Clay Tiles Ltd are ideal where the benefits of a new clay tile is required but with the genuine look of an aged and weathered appearance.
The pitted finish has been designed to catch lichen to encourage the weathering process and to blend into the natural surroundings of the property. This is particularly evident when our handmade roof tiles are used in more rural settings.
Our handmade roof tiles really do have character and are perfectly suited for use on projects such as barn conversions or mixing in with existing tiles.
Our handmade roof tiles exhibit wonderful tones with subtle variation within each of our ranges. They can be used for new developments, just as well as the more traditional country properties.

The name Essex originates in the Anglo-Saxon period of the Early Middle Ages and has its root in the Anglo-Saxon name Eastseaxe, meaning East Saxons, the eastern kingdom of the Saxons who had come from the continent and settled in Britain during the Heptarchy. The Heptarchy is a collective name applied to the seven kingdoms of Anglo-Saxon England from the Anglo-Saxon settlement of Britain in the 5th century until their unification into the Kingdom of England in the early 10th century.
Originally recorded in AD 527, Essex occupied territory to the north of the River Thames, incorporating all of what later became Middlesex, some of Surrey and most of what later became Hertfordshire. Its territory was later restricted to lands east of the River Lea.
In AD 824, following the Battle of Ellandun, the kingdoms of the East Saxons, the South Saxons and the Jutes of Kent were absorbed into the kingdom of the West Saxons, uniting Saxland under King Alfreds grandfather Ecgberht. Before the Norman conquest the East Saxons were subsumed into the Kingdom of England.
