From the Archive

Anyone with a garden in Uffington will know that the village is built on a bedrock of clay. What many may not know is that there was a brickyard on Casewick Lane in the 19th century, which supplied clay to Blashfield's terracotta factory in Stamford, the blue grey colour of the raw material  transforming to a bright orange when fired in a kiln.

During last year's Covid-19 lockdown, Uffington resident Pam Orme utilized the clay to create a simple pot, employing techniques used in an Early Neolithic bowl found in the village during an archaeological survey in 1991.

The process involved rolling the clay and coiling it on a circular base, smoothing the joins and giving the vessel a S-shaped profile with a wide mouth and rolled-over rim. A wooden tool and a stone were used to finish and decorate the outer surface of the body of the pot and fingerprint impressions were added on the rim.

To further emphasise its local connection, the base was inscribed with a heart logo, which was the brandmark for Uffington animals grazed on Deeping Common in the Middle Ages. The end result was left to dry for several weeks before being fired in a kiln at 700 degrees centigrade.

The pot will go on display in the Village Hall.
