Whyteway Fisheries & Fenlandia Pottery c1980
In 1978 Michael and Mary Armstrong who made a living as pottery decorators living at Sutton in Ashfield Nottinghamshire moved to Ramsey, purchasing the run-down Whyteway Fisheries at 28 Great Whyte. After running the chip shop for a couple of years and finding the work not to their liking they went back to pottery decorating and rented chip shop to Sid Ellington, who ran it until 1982 when it was purchased by Steve Petrou who owned the chip shop over the road. Steve promptly closed it down.
In 1984 Michael & Mary launched Family Tree Magazine.
