The Chauffetieres brick, French Heritage monument to L home chamondot

Attested in 1760 (described in the encyclopedia), the brickyard for the Chauffetieres property of the marquis de Gontaud-Biron, then consisted a single oven, a Hall, a housing and a stable. It was increased to a second oven and a Hall in the early 19th century. Clay, extracted locally, is still used for the manufacture of bricks molded hand (approximately 1,000 per day) or by means of a mechanical press (approximately 2 000 per day). One of the two furnaces was destroyed in 1990. One surviving, installed under one of les halles, is an intermittent furnace to direct flame, laboratory vaulted, equipped with a fireplace and two channels of warmers. The oven and its load are gradually heated for two days (slowly), then the home is continually fed for three days (great fire). After extinction of the fireplace, oven is covered by soil for eight days (cooking in the hushed), then discharged. Its capacity is 17 000 bricks. About 60 cubic metres of wood are required for a batch. These ceramic bricks produced in the Chauffetieres are mainly intended for restoration of historic sites. A hangar was added circa 1984.
