First off, i apologise for the picture heavy thread, this place has been on my list for years so to say i was excited about finally getting in was an understatement (361 photos in total!)
Felt like a kid in a candy shop.
Entry wasn't easy but so so worth it, the angry owner wasn't anywhere to be seen either, so it was a winner all round - a lovely thursday evening explore with @_motionlessinmike and a non-member.

Stolen History:
T.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.
Now, the old pottery site lays in ruins, the land under private ownership, never likely to ever see production again, the last of the South Derbyshire potteries has gone, although as it nears its 100th anniversary the traditional Cornishware is still manufactured and sold through a new T.G.Green & Co Ltd.

Yeah it’s been a few years since I’ve seen a report on it.
Yeah I think we just got lucky with that one, was fully expecting to be carted back to the main road haha!
