About the History of 'Waterside'
Waterside House is built on the site of the old Doddington Brickyard, which was established in round about 1840, and closed in 1909. The lake (or "pit"), reputed to be 60ft deep, remains as evidence of it's history, along with the name of the Lane; a few old bricks, and the scullery table from the Brickyard Owner's cottage.

In 1877, it took 3 weeks to transport 47,200 Doddington bricks 5 1/2 miles by horse and cart, to build a school at Manea.

"The Brickmakers Arms" Ale House (1870's), once stood at the entrance to the Lane. This was closed in 1950 after the Landlord retired, and was demolished a few years later.

Further up the Lane are four terraced cottages, which were built around 1911, reputedly making use of the bricks from the kilns.

In 2001, three of the old Doddington Bricks were incorporated into the front of the new Doddington Village Hall (above the date stone).

Also in 2001, our clients purchased a building plot from one of the Great Great Grandsons of the Doddigton Brickyard Founder, which included the Brickyard Owners' now derelict cottages and stables and a section of the Lake. They wished to restore the remaining ruins of the cottages and stables and also build another dwelling, but the plans were refused in favour of the two properties that stand on the site today.

To this day, some of the machinery that heralded the decline of hand-made bricks and forced the closure of the Doddington Brickworks, lie submerged at the bottom of the lake.

The site today has many charms. The Lake boasts a healthy population of many species of fish, ducks and other wildfowl.

A little piece of Fenland History ready to pass on to new owners and begin a new chapter!
