In 1959 Joseph Bourne & Son (Denby Pottery) bought nearby pottery, Langley Mill. Originally Denby and Langley were operated as two completely separate companies though gradually a new direction was imposed on Langley Mill. Designers including Albert Colledge, Glyn Colledge, and Gill Pemberton introduced many new contemporary stoneware ranges and by 1976 the two potteries became united as Denby Tableware Ltd.
Though shortly after with Denby Tableware was going through a period of significant financial worry and the Langley Mill was closed. The last collection made at Langley Mill was Falling Leaves designed by Thelma Hague. If you can't find your pattern here have a look at our Denby page
