Dunster's potteries and brickworks

Potter and Crocker surnames occur between 1266 and 1375 and Crokkerlane in 1417, implying the existence of a medieval pottery. Pottery was being made in Dunster in the 20th century but the industry was particularly important in the 18th century when brickmaking also started on an industrial scale.
