Of Clay and Coffee

On a recent jaunt into the wilds of Wiltshire we found ourselves west of Salisbury in Tisbury, buying a map. Across the road was the pottery shop and studio of Kate Good. Since most ceramics are magnetic, we were of course drawn in. Getting out was more difficult, as Kate is a lovely lady and her work is of a quality which puts mine to shame. Unpretentious, unassuming, beautfully made. A potter’s potter. As if that wasn’t reason enough to visit Tisbury, just a few doors away is Beaton’s Tearooms & Restaurant. Carrot cake oozing honey and fresh walnuts, coffee of a rare quality, and impressive attention to detail in the service and setting. Superb. They even have a small bookshop. No wonder Tisbury was bustling – why would anyone want to leave? Eat your hearts out, clone-towns.
