Was recently sorting out some new pictures and re-editing some old ones for my own blog and thought I’d share them here too. I don’t often post revisit pictures but I make an exception for TG Green – even though it’s several years past its best it’s still probably my favourite derp for various reasons! I think these pictures span a couple of visits but the most recent are from September with @Saltburndan1971T.G.Green & Co Ltd originally operated from the village of Church Gresley, South Derbyshire between 1864 and 2007.
More famous for their blue and white striped 'Cornish Kitchen Ware' produced from the early 1920's (then known as 'E-Blue') the pottery produced many hundreds of patterns from Yellow wares, Victorian transfer prints, colourful hand painted Art Nouveau & vibrant enamelled Art Deco patterns, Wartime utility pottery, avant garde Retro designs and many well-known Brewery wares, employing up to 1,000 local staff at the height of production. Production ceased in 2007 and the factory and land is currently under private ownership.
And a bit of Cornish Blue to end on
Thanks for looking
