London Yellow Stocks are an original imperial brick that date as far back as the late 18th century, and were used as a main form of building material that is still very much in view today. Numerous properties across London and the South East of England were built with Yellow Stocks and therefore they are still very much in demand. The distinctive yellow clay from which London Yellow Stocks are made was a byproduct of the industrialisation of London, with much of it coming from the digging out of the London Underground system.
Yellow Stocks are imperial in size.
