Project ID771
DescriptionWood Green Potteries, Upshire. Waltham Abbey is in the Lea Valley, which has been associated with growing fruit, vegetables and flowers for the London market over many years. Wood Green Potteries belonged to friends of my husband so I have been lucky to have had access to the history of the Potteries and Upshire Hall, the house associated with them. I have found photographs of the workers and the premises which closed in 1964.
