JH Weatherbys Ltd (Falcon Works)

History
The J.H. Weatherby & Sons(Ltd), a family-run company was founded in Tunstall in 1891 and moved to Hanley the following year. Named 'Falcon Pottery', it was the base for their manufacturing and trading of earthenware, and was one of a number of similar potteries in Stoke on-Trent.
1906 saw the addition of a circular bottle kiln, typical of the time but becoming rather rare now.

Unfortunately the high costs of producing pottery in England compared to mass production elsewhere in the world forced the company into receivership.

Was a pretty relaxed explore from what i can remember :rolleyes: visited with a non member
