The Clay Factory originally started life as a china clay works at the turn of the 1900’s – the clay was pumped down to the site from Dartmoor for drying and processing before being transported by train for production. No longer commercially viable, the clay works closed shop in the early 1930’s.
The next company to take up residence was the tractor engineering firm Western Machinery who were so impactful that The Clay Factory is still known in the local community as the ‘Western Machinery building’ or Westmac.
After Western Machinery closed it doors the site was broken up into smaller units for various industrial uses. After many years of under use, the section now known as The Clay Factory was officially taken over by RedPod Enterprises in 2016 when we launched our ambitious plan to set the building at the heart of the community once again.
We have a mixture of spaces available for individuals, organisations and charities that can be utilised in a variety of different ways – we’re open to suggestion so don’t be shy about coming to us with your ideas should you be interested in a space .
