TG Greens Pottery – Swadlincote


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, sadly, 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.


This really is such a sad site. What was once a busy pottery factory is now just crumbling away, most likely never to be used again. It seems to just be a dumping ground for industrial vehicles and debris now.
