Bursledon Brickworks in Southampton, Hampshire was built in 1897. The new brickworks were innovative for their time as they used a large brick making machine and known as a stiff clay extruder. The manufacturers claimed it was capable of making 40,000 bricks a day. The machine was run by a steam engine.

Once the bricks were made they were dried in large drying sheds. These were heated via underfloor pipes and the bricks took a set time to dry. When they had dried completely the bricks were then taken down to the kiln.

The kiln was a continuous kiln with twelve chambers. Each chamber could hold up to 26,000 bricks at a time. The kiln was always burning with the chambers going from cold to over 1000 degrees Centigrade every 15 days or so.

In 1903, the brickworks changed its name to The Bursledon Brick Co. Limited or (B.B.C. Ltd.). This coincided with the extension of the southern complex and the addition of another complete works to the north. This was further extended in 1935 with the addition of a third unit. With the extra capacity, the brickworks was producing in excess of 20 million bricks a year. They were one of the main producers of bricks in the region.

After the Second World War, the family business was amalgamated with the Sussex and Dorking Brick Company and in 1959 became Redland Holdings Ltd.

The brickworks finally closed in 1974, and the site was later saved from demolition by the Hampshire Buildings Preservation Trust. Bursledon Brickworks Museum houses the brick kiln, chimney, drying sheds, boiler and engine house.

Ghost activity includes the sound of; whistling, voices, knocking as well as shadows and a black mass. Are these caused by the workers going about their daily routine in the workshops?

The Explosion Museum (Priddy's Hard)in Gosport, Hampshire was originally bought in 1750 by the Board of Ordnance from Jane Priddy (hence Priddy's Hard) and others to construct the defences of Portsmouth Harbour and the Dockyard. The defences were completed in 1756. Soon afterwards the gunpowder stores were relocated from Portsmouth to Priddy's Hard for safety reasons and in 1771 a magazine, office and cooperage were constructed. Officer's houses and large gardens were added in 1777.

In 1805 the Grand Magazine on the site was used to store Gunpowder that was delivered to Priddy's Hard from Waltham Abbey. Gunpowder was transported from this Magazine to the Trafalgar Fleet via a Camber Dock, the Fleet included Nelson's Flagship HMS Victory.

In 1861 C Magazine was built and in 1879 the largest magazine, E Magazine was built. During the 1860s the fortifications were strengthened incorporating brick gateways, carponniers and or covered firing positions to cover the moats, Armstrong guns were fitted to the two demi-bastions.

The site was fully utilised during the Second World War and was last used for significant naval activity during the Falklands Conflict in 1982, the site remained active until 1988.

Twelve untimely deaths have happened at Priddy's Hard as a result of accidental explosions and in one case an "unnatural" gust of wind, rumoured to be the evil spirit of a convict labourer who died in the same spot.

Sightings of the unfortunate souls have been rumoured by former workers of the Royal Navy Armaments Depot over the years including security guards that have looked after the listed buildings.
