10/32 Wetheriggs Pottery
Kiln, workshops, drying shed, kiln room, steam house and blunger. 1855 as a
brick and tileworks for the Brougham estate. Red brick walls, under pantile
roofs with stone and brick chimney stacks. Single-storey buildings arranged in
U-shape around a small courtyard, with attached steam house and blunger.
Bee-hive kiln is within square brick building with plank doors. Adjoining long
workshops have plank doors and casement windows. Right-angled range is divided
into open-sided drying shed and enclosed kiln room. Rear steam house has plank
doors and round-arched casement windows; tall square chimney stack. Adjoining
blunger is a circular brick-lined pit with central pivoted paddle for mixing
clay and water, powered by the steam engine in the steam house. A working
pottery which continued using old methods of production until the mid C20. Now
reopened as a working pottery, to which the public are admitted, preserving
original machinery and traditional designs, but electrically fired kiln. See
guide book, Wetheriggs Country Pottery, 1984. The present shop and house are not
of special interest.
