Standard Clay mine and Brickworks Bayne, WA

The clay mine and brickwork's were located near the former town-site of Bayne, WA.  A large plant was built near Bayne for the manufacturing of paving brick.  Shales were well located on the hillside above the site for gravity handling to the plant.  Although equipped with modern machinery the plant failed to turn out a salable brick and after much fruitless experimentation it was scrapped.
