    Originally found by Stokie-gaz, this place was a possible on todays list. It was built as the Soho pottery works in the 1920's , but later became Simpsons. Turns out it was fantastic, with everything still in situ. The company made everything from toilets to Starbuck's mugs! The whole back yard was full of pottery, it's packaging falling to pecies with the rain. Inside was stacked high with moulds, there was adverts and drawings all over the offices, as well as specimine pots, and sample glazed pecies. Ths sheer amount of pottery they left behind is amazing!
