During the 1930s Michael Cardew, a 4th generation Oxford scholar with an insatiable passion for ceramics, wanted to move his young family from Gloucestershire to Cornwall and purchased an idyllic smallholding beside the river.
The first kiln was constructed in 1939 to produce his distinctive glazed pottery. The kiln fell silent during World War II as the blackout restrictions temporarily halted pottery production. The central kiln has laid unused for many years but is now revitalised as part of the innovative planning permission granted for the construction of a four bedroom residential property.
