Spotted a couple of items from Old Forge Pottery, Rowland's Castle. (Not to be confused with Martin Pettinger's Old Forge Pottery, Williton, Somerset)

The address is still listed, although the pottery closed years ago and the building is now is a state of disrepair.

Yes, I come across it quite often in the charity shops in Alton but not found out much about it.

From the Rowlands Castle Heritage Centre:
The Old Forge Pottery in Durrants Road, Rowlands Castle, was run by Harry Clarke until he retired in the 1990s
NB. Also mention inn the Marks book of a Mrs Lloyd who potted in Rowlands Castle in the 50s before moving to Sussex. Maybe Harry Clarke took over the pottery?
