Gladstone Pottery Museum Gladstone Pottery Museum

Wednesday 10th. September at 2.00pm 

Gladstone is a really interesting Pottery to go round.  

Located in a Victorian pottery factory, the museum offers a fascinating insight into the history of Stoke-on-Trent, famous the world over for the quality of its pottery. Gladstone itself was not a famous pottery, however it was typical of hundreds of similar factories in the area making everyday ceramic items for the mass market. Experience for yourself what conditions were like for the men, women and children who worked at the centre of the world’s pottery industry. Watch daily demonstrations of pottery skill and try your hand at throwing a pot, making a bone china flower or decorating a piece a pottery. There is also an amazing exhibition of TOILETS. (NB. one of the first flushing toilets in England was installed at nearby Bishton Hall).


If we can get a party of 10 together the cost will be £6.85 and includes a Guide and the price is reduced to £6.25 if we can get 15 people. If less than 10 arrive however, there will be no personal Guide and it is £5.50 for concessions. There is a very good Cafe inside, serving home made food, with friendly service.
