    Default Holdings Country Pottery, Oswaldtwistle July 2017


    Off me an Landie Man went on another of our weekend adventures in high spirits, that were soon dashed by the arrival of inclement weather and an inability to make anything go to plan. I had a list of sites as long as my arm to see and through various reasons - be it them being tighter than a nuns arse, undergoing conversion, demolition, huge masses of undergrowth blocking any paths to them or newly installed very loud alarm systems we saw none of them. So we headed off elsewhere and finally got into some places, nothing epic but this one was the best of the trip and a place I had been wanting to see for absolutely years.

    Getting in was pretty easy despite the undergrowth and trees doing their best to smother the buildings, and inside past the soggy mess of the first few offices and showroom spaces the production areas were beautifully overgrown and filled with a mass of ferns and other plants growing through almost everything.

    And of course my first shot was the famous sign...
