Holding Brothers Pottery, Oswaldtwistle

The Broughton Barn Pottery was founded on a large clay deposit on the windswept moors of Oswaldtwistle, this was dug, blended, washed and processed on site before it was thrown into pots.

The Holding involvement came in 1842 with a small pottery nearby.

18 years later they moved to the current building.

Originally it was powered by a steam engine (not longer in situ) but the line shafting is still present.
