I never knew that.

 

why do you think that was? Was it a trend or a requirement or just self-pride?

To elaborate, Bricklayers are the top actors in the building trade , no joiner , plumber , painter or plasterer has ever been shown a field  or empty site and told , " righto there  is the site" build a house , office or skyscraper , It is always the bricklayer who is responsible for making sure the building is in the right place in the right Town and that the building rises to the sky plumb and true.

 

Every other trade follows , moaning that this int right and thats not right , but in the end they all depend on Sheffields famous bricklayers to get the building in situ in the first place .
