One of the finest and most distinctive traditional roof coverings available, the cross-cambered Goxhill handmade clay plain tile gives a rich, textured roof that is guaranteed to withstand the British climate.
Each tile is made with high-quality clay from the alluvial plains of the river Humber. These extensive natural reserves have been used and managed for generations to produce highly durable clay tiles in rich colours and textures.
Working to strict environmental standards, Sandtoft periodically restores its clay pits as wetland habitats, two of which are now registered as sites of special scientific interest (SSSI).
The real character in a handmade plain tile comes from the way the tile is handled by the maker. Each of the company's craftsmen does things slightly differently in a way that makes the tiles unique.
Drawing on more than a century of experience, Sandtoft clay tiles have been designed to be resistant to the UK climate throughout their lifetime, and are frost/thaw tested to exceed the requirements of the latest standards.
Goxhill tiles are made from 100% green electricity using raw clay sourced immediately adjacent to the manufacturing facility. The switch to renewable energy has been accompanied by a number of initiatives to reduce energy usage, such as recycling heat from the kilns to dry the tiles and an investment in the latest ceramic tile making technology.
