    It's been at least a week since anyone's posted pics of this place - and a week is a long time in urbex world! so I thought I might as well put mine up as I made the effort to go round twice - second time just for the piano, and one good shot, but it was worth it! I also love all the little bits and pieces that have been left behind here. I went the same day as three other 28 dayers! so quite a busy place :)

    HISTORY FROM INTERNET/OTHERS

    "Holding's Country Pottery was founded in 1842 by James Holding, but it was not originally located on Haslingden Old Road where it is now. The original pottery was built a short distance away in Gaulkthorn, another outlying area of Oswaldtwistle. In 1860 James Holding moved his business to Broadfield, then in 1900 his son Grimshaw Holding set up the pottery on the present site. From then on the pottery stayed put and the business passed down from father to son until it's decline very recently - the last mandatory accounts, made up to 3rd. May, were submitted to Companies House in 2010, with the comment, "Nature of business, dormant company"
