Bungee-assisted trampolining at Hornsea Freeport Shopping Village.

In 1953 Colin and Desmond Rawson purchased the brick and tile works at Edenfield House off Marlborough Avenue, Hornsea, and moved their four year old pottery business here from Market Place the following year. In 1955 they established the Hornsea Pottery Co. Ltd., employing nearly 200 people by the mid 1960s and 300 by the early '70s. As well as tours of the pottery, visitor attractions included a wildfowl lake, birds of prey, pony rides, a collection of cars and a small zoo. Local opposition to more expansion plans caused the firm to open another factory in Lancaster but the company went into receivership in 1984 and then changed hands several times before closing in 2000. The Freeport Shopping Village was opened on the Hornsea site in 1994.
