In 1740 John Warburton moved from Pandon Dean in Newcastle, where he made brownware, to Carr Hill, where he is said to have introduced the first local whire earthenware into the district. The pottery continued under various owners until its closure in 1893. The pottery was demolished in 1932 and Nos. 92 and 94 Carr Hill Road now occupy the site.
