Earth Blocks Ltd offers the most extensive range of preformed cob blocks and cob bricks in the UK. Our manufacturing processes of cob blocks and cob bricks are unique and unequalled. However, we’re not resting on our laurels here…..far from it! We continually push the envelope with research and development.

Ok, so where would be a point-of-use for these specials? They’re not exactly recognised within mainstream design for wall building! And you’re right, these cob products wouldn’t easily come to mind when your average architect is at the design phase. However, an expanding arena is sighted. Bespoke architectural design using sustainable materials is gaining pace and the discerned client is driving a trend toward both.
