Established in 1926 on the site of a pottery dating back to the early 1800's makes it one of the longest running craft potteries in the country making some of the finest and most practical domestic pottery in the world. The pottery may be used in conventional as well as microwave ovens and dishwashers which gives it a very up-to-date practicality to such traditional stoneware. The only restrictions are that they should not be used under grills or on hot-plates or naked flames. The glazes are harder than steel and even good old elbow grease will not wear them away! All of the beautifully fired products from the pottery kiln are for sale in The Pottery Shop which is open : All the Year, Monday to Friday from 8am to 5pm and Saturday 10am to 4pm as well as Sundays from May to September 12 to 4pm.
