This is my first report on here so be gentle!

A bit of history, Nelson Pottery has been on this site since the late 1800's,

It shut down in the 80's when the pottery industry started to fall...

It is part of an industrial estate that has pretty much been demolished now, for the last 20 years or so there has been a few businesses running there but they are all shut now, the last one being the paper mill just down the road.

There also used to be a lot of terraced houses in the area, the housing for the workers, but they have all been demolished now, here were the last few by the factory...

Anyway, it was a nice explore, I love doing the pottery factories, especially ones that people I know have worked in, it's sad to see...

Anyway, enough about that, onto the pics...
