Full Description

There were several post-medieval potteries at Heath End and their history is complex. Most of the sites were in Leicestershire; however, one was in Calke parish. This was a farm rented by George Vernon, a carpenter, which was also a pottery, believed to be that described as 'David Hydes … potworks in the township of Caulke'. Edward Standley was also hired to work here in 1766. This site was definitely finished by 1787 when the buildings were demolished after the death of George Vernon. (1)
