T G Greens Pottery Derbyshire, a nice mid week solo explore with plenty to see and photograph, this site really is a good explore and well the trip out, i do love a good pottery and this is one of the best i've seen you can get a good feel of what it was like when it was in opperation with the amount of stuff left behind and the kilms are amazing to say the least. its a pity the local kids and metal thieves have done there best to smash it up but that aside i find these places a real joy , just wish it was a little closer to home. there is one large building i didn't get to see i think this is the old factory shop and the more modern side to the factory..
some history​
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.

A well covered site at the moment but i hope you enjoy this one too.
