Historic circular brick factory of Count August Merveldt in Šárovcova Lhota

Šárovcova Lhota 94
Šárovcova Lhota, 507 59

The brick fractory from 1921 is an authentic industrial plant presenting a small exposition on the history of brickmaking and a demonstration of the manufacture and firing of bricks in a Hoffman circular kiln. The site is uniquely preserved in both materials and structure, including the firing kiln and the original wooden superstructure for the drying of bricks. The site is normally closed, but opens on appointment with the owner, who acts as a guide and provides expert commentary (cca 45 minutes). No admission fee is charged, but voluntary contributions (for repairs) are welcomed. More detailed description, including several photographs, can be found e.g. at
