    Hi,

    I am trying to identify an old concrete tile. I've been told it is no longer being manufactured. Just wondered if anyone recognises the profile.

    Thanks

    Hi cjh,

    Where abouts in Herts are you?

    I'm in Hemel and have a 1950s house.

    I've got a patch of felt missing and the back of my tiles reads:

    Redland 50
    862055

    A quick google says Marley and Redland were 2 of the main tile manufacturers for post-war houses.

    Do you know who your house was built by?

    Try google image search for "Redland interlocking tile" and you might spot yours?

    Cheers,

    Isley

    If they are concrete they could be Anchor Ancona, but I would not put money on it..
