Doulton Half bat brick found in Thatto Heath.

Tried a different area for walking today and I covered the ground near the Thatto Heath Crusader RFC. Not much to find but then located a Doulton half bat brick in some sandy soil. I knew what it was straight away as it had pretty clean brickmark, even though it was a half bat. I have a full one in my brick collection.
The origins of the brick is from the brickworks that once stood on what is now Morrisons, Boundary Road.
