This is a historical site that should be preserved. Pottery is becoming more and more popular as a craft and this popularity would sustain a museum or attraction such as this.

I am signing because Wetheriggs Pottery is a scheduled industrial monument located near Penrith, Cumbria. U.K and should be protected.
Wetheriggs Pottery is the last complete example of a steam powered country pottery left in the U.K and hence is of significant importance to our industrial heritage. The tradition of English country pottery making has been with us from medieval times onward and is a craft which permeated many aspects of our social life.

This is a significant part of the industrial & human heritage of the UK & should remain a place where people can learn about & appreciate the art & craft of pottery. It is a rare & unique link in the 6 millenia of its history from neolithic times through the medieval period and on into modern times in these islands.

Thanks for adding your voice.

I visited this years ago and it would be very sad if it was built over- we've lost far too much of our industrial heritage. Surely a preservation could be slapped on it?? But any developer with an ounce of imagination would restore it themselves and then build around it!

This is part of our local historic and social history and the last steam blunger in the country. Surely there are other places new houses can be built without destroying history forever?
