I stopped here on a solo visit on the way to Pirelli after seeing the report by TranKmast, thanks also goes to him for some info, cheers :thumb

The place is pretty open to the elements in parts, and as it was absolutely pissing down and windy as fook i didn't stay too long, it's worth a mooch though if your round that way.



Cornish Kitchen Ware was first produced in 1926 by T.G.Green & Co in Church Gresley, Derbyshire, a county famed for its pottery. The range’s special characteristic came from the lathe-turning process, which cut clean bands through its beautiful blue slip to show the white clay beneath. It was apparently this that inspired the name, since it reminded one T.G.Green & Co. employee of the clear blues and white-tipped waves of Cornwall.

The range of kitchen and table ware, from the hooped plates to the iconic storage jars, was an immediate success and remained popular from then on. This inspired T.G.Green & Co. to produce more colours of Cornishware, and more ranges, including the spotted Domino Ware and the cream and green Streamline Ware.
