Described as one of the best preserved examples of a Victorian country pottery in England, Farnham Pottery is to be sold following the completion of its award winning restoration.


The Farnham (Building Preservation) Trust purchased the site in 1998 to prevent the buildings from falling into decay and being bulldozed, and it has since spent hundreds of thousands of pounds restoring and preserving the Grade II listed pottery in Wrecclesham.


The Trust purchased the Farnham Pottery 12 years ago to ensure the conservation of the site and its buildings, says trustee, Brian Lowe. It represents a valuable example of local industrial architecture and heritage.The restoration has taken much time and effort, and has received a number of awards.


With the buildings now preserved for the enjoyment of the people of Farnham, and for future generations, our work is now done and it is time to sell so that we can move on to other projects in the town. The Trust is therefore looking for a purchaser who will use the buildings in a way that safeguards their future.


The pottery is home to a number of operations including a Smith and Causeys coffee shop and farm shop, Froyle Tiles and West Street Potters and the sale will not affect the day-to-day running of the businesses on site.



  • The Farnham Pottery currently produces an annual income of around 32,250 and is being offered for sale at a guide price in excess of 400,000, viaJon Hollis at commercial property consultant Hollis Hockley: 01252 545848.More information at www.farnhamtrust.org.uk
