Milton Head - Brixham's historic pottery

Torquay Library is delighted to host a display of Milton Head Pottery, courtesy of Becky Nuttall and Artizan Gallery. Milton Head Pottery ran from 1950-1959 and was based at The Old Pound House, Milton Street, Brixham. The pottery was started by 3 partners in 1950. Peter Draper, the artist and designer, was better known later for his writing for TV (including Poldark) and films (The System). Sidney Higgins, whose family owned Brickfields, was responsible for the pottery kiln firing. Frank Middlebrook, an ex-serviceman, was the pottery thrower. The display runs throughout March and will delight both ceramics and retro enthusiasts alike.
