Aller Vale was one of the larger potteries in the Torquay group. Founded in 1881 by John Phillips, it was heavily influenced by the Arts & Crafts movement, and absorbed the Watcombe and Longpark potteries in the early 20th century, before being absorbed in turn by the Watcombe Pottery. It closed in 1932.
