In the light of the PM statement just now we are now closed for the foreseeable future. If you have booked with us we will be in touch. If you have pottery to collect we will be in touch to arrange collection. There's a lot to do just now, so we would appreciate it if you did not contact us right now and leave us to work through everything. We need to communicate with our staff and make sure they are safe and understand what is happening and how we can continue to support them. Thank you for your patience. We will do all that we can to fight for our business and the jobs of our staff and we will be back. Keep a lookout for our posts, we will be working away behind the scenes.To all our customers over the many years thank you for all your support without you we have no business. Its a very sad day for us we have been in the park since 1947 and we cant wait to re open and see you all again. Please don't forget us.


Stay safe and well. 
Remember to wash your hands and the one meter rule.
