    Default Sandford Pottery


    Not a recent visit...infact pics are over 30 years old - it was a derelict site so i hope it counts!

    The pottery was demolished about 5 years after these pics were taken

    Pics Here

    Let me know what you think!

    Thanks

    Hi,

    I'm currently about to start quite a lot of research about the site, and hoping that there is enough info to write a book on it. If anyone can remember it before it was demolished in the late 70s/early 80s then please send me a message :)

    Thanks

    Great site & great pictures :) Looking back now, there`s a few sites that I`d very much have liked to photograph in the `70`s. Thanks for posting

    Old school black and white film photos look fantastic :)

    It's really good to see photos from years ago it somehow it makes it more interesting!

    Perhaps connected with thread
    https://www.derelictplaces.co.uk/main...light=sandford

    I've taken a photo of one of the bricks which were made on the pottery site in about 1850


    Possible connection anyway?
