I was not aware of this place until I seen a report on it last summer and as with Octel Bromine it was the medical room that caught my eye. And a little beauty it was too. Great decay with some nice features left. This place is rather big. The sort of place that seems to keep going and going with shit loads to have a look at. The old kilns where very nice, especially a big walk in one down in the lower levels. Some cool decay and nature egress in here also plus some collapsed floors and roofs in parts. A cracking mooch this one which I thoroughly enjoyed. Visited with non member Paul.

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, 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.

Looks good mate! Quality place and bloody massive isn't it? We could've spent another few hours in the place but ran out of daylight recently. Cheers for posting (y)

Nice mate (y)  As Hamtagger said we were here recently and I loved it. I have to agree on the med room. Real little gem here. Still, I found it fascinating :)

Some cracking images you got there reminds me a bit of George Barnsley, really liking it. This seems to be a place that has been 'on the map' for years and from the reports I see it surprisingly seems to get better and better!! Have there been new bits opening up I wonder? Must get my sorry arse round there at some point soon.....
