Muchelney Pottery - Kiln opening day!
Twice a year, the sleepy village of Muchelney in Somerset comes
alive to a kiln opening at John Leach's Muchelney Pottery. These
events attract locals and visitors alike who are able to buy pots
straight from the kiln and sample local Cider Brandy and smoked
delicacies from local suppliers. Time Team's Phil Harding was
an added attraction demonstrating his skills at producing "stone
age" hand axes.
I arrived just after 10am on a beautiful sunny
morning to find the car park already overflowing. The kiln's were
half emptied with new pots everywhere.
