    A character terraced property with origins believed to date back to the 1700’s. Grade II Listed, the property has an interesting history, originally part of ‘Belmont Terrace’ and in 1913, we believe, sold by Sir John Mowlem and George Burt to Mr Smith who ran the premises as a Grocery Store. Sold to the current owners in the 1960’s the property was established as a Pottery and used as such since. The property is in need of updating and refurbishment throughout and its current permitted usage is ‘shop & premises’.
