We have recently heard that Michael Cardew’s old pottery at Wenford Bridge is subject to a planning application to be converted into residential properties. We are urging people to contact North Cornwall DC to voice their objections. Michael Cardew was Leach’s first apprentice and the Wenford Bridge was one of the most significant small potteries in the country.
Update 3 October 2008:
North Cornwall District Council have informed us that the planning application to convert the pottery to residential units has been withdrawn.
The contact is:
