Potfest at Penrith

There is a tradition of pottery and associated crafts around Penrith which date back many years. For instance Wetheriggs pottery has carried on the tradition of potting although its ownership has changed frequently. Then there is also Lilliput Lane which became a tremendous local success story in the 1980's and was eventually sold to the giant American firm Enesco.

Here at Wetheral Cottages one of the local events which we always look forward to during the busy August weeks is the Potfest at Penrith. It's held at the Skirsgill auction mart just the other side of the motorway at junction 40 so there is always plenty of room to park and walk around the marvellous exhibits.

It's also worth noting that if you can't make this show then there is also a Potfest at Hutton in the Forest the week before.
