Back to Re-Form Homepage

We are delighted to announce that Middleport Pottery's Heritage Trail will re-open from 17th May

Opening times: 7 days a week, 10am - 4pm

This fascinating trail of the pottery's heritage includes Heritage Offices, Steam Engine, Grade II listed Bottle Kiln, Bath House, & Europe's largest Ceramic Design Archive.

Learn all about Middleport Pottery as you explore its unique heritage site. Explore the original Victorian offices and learn about the people and events which have shaped the Pottery. Step back in time as you explore our mould store, housing Europe’s largest collection of ceramic moulds, and take an inside look at the Pottery’s huge bottle kiln, one of the few remaining in Stoke and an iconic reminder of the city’s great industrial heritage.

Our team of friendly volunteers are on hand to answer any questions and bring the history to life.
