To complement our Pantiles, William Blyth manufacture a selection of handmade Plain Tiles which are available in the four traditional colours. Our Plain Tiles can be laid as one colour or blended to give your property its own unique appearance.

The Plain Tiles are made using the same alluvial clay as our Pantiles; each tile has its own characteristics due to the way the tile is handled by the maker. The Plain Tiles are fired with our Pantiles in our coal-fired kilns, which helps achieve an array of different shades. In addition to the Plain Tile, we also produce a traditional Medieval Tile, slightly larger in size and offering a more rustic look; with all our tiles, we have a comprehensive range of standard fittings. Please see our fittings page.
