Visited with @GK_WAX another early morning start to the first location that we wanted to do but didn't turn out as planned. Due to security and a rather large German Shepard dog chasing us back over the fence. A close call but we will leave that place for another time. The back to the car and of to TG green pottery.quite a large site in a bit of a mess but still some nice features. There was also a couple of barn owls but didn't manage to get a photo of them so here's a few photos I got and a bit of history..


A proud history

T.G. Green was founded by Thomas Goodwin Green back in 1864. Rumour has it that he bought up an existing pottery factory while he was on his honeymoon with his new wife, Mary Tenniel, the sister of Punch and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland illustrator Sir John Tenniel.

One of the companies most popular lines has always been Cornishware which was first produced in 1924. It was created using a nifty lathe-turning technique that scraped blue slip away from its beautiful ceramics to reveal white bands of clay beneath. Those stripes reminded an employee of the blue skies and white-crested waves of Cornwall, which is how Cornishware got its name.

Iconic design

Good to see this again mate :thumb
One of my favourite places. This is one of those rare sites that barely seems to have changed since the first report, probably down to reports of shovel wielding owners!

Nice set mate :thumb.

Thought I was never going to get out of that place when I went, as it kept going on and on and on!

Did you get to the medical room? That was the best bit for me and was still in very good condition a few years back.

@ZerO81 i think we covered it all and didn't recognise the medical room from previous post so I either missed it or its been cleared out.

Can't believe that teapot is still in the exact same position!

Looks very much the same - I imagine somewhat damper though- the medical room was in a bit of an odd downstairs corner down a very dark corridor if I remember correctly
