A Herefordshire Pottery

Place name:

St Margarets


ca 1600?


In the spring of 1954, Mr R. S. G. Robinson reported to the Hon. Secretary of the Woolhope Club that many fragments of Pottery were being unearthed at St. Margarets in a field that was being deep ploughed to destroy bracken before being replanted. A visit by members of the club showed that this find was important and Mr Griffiths was informed. By permission of Mr Denzill Gwillam, the owner of the farm, Mr Griffiths and a friend spent several days of hard labour on the spot and excavated many pottery sherds which he took home and reconstructed. The result is of great interest.
