    Holding's Country Pottery was founded in 1842 by James Holding, 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". The reason for the decline of the business we do not know, the impression is not of a building abandoned recently, it looks more like ten years of decay!
