Caledonian Pottery famous across the globe for tea pots, enough said...

The vast Caledonian Pottery manufactured stoneware vessels, exporting its ware across the globe. Founded in 1800 and originally based on the banks of the Monkland canal the pottery moved to this site in 1872 under the ownership of the Murray family. Murray expanded the range of pottery produced by the factory and the pottery employed agents in Scotland, England and Ireland to market its pots. In the late 19th and early 20th century the output of the pottery was massive with an extensive export industry to America and New Zealand.
