Visited with Zero.

Speed exploring at it's finest. After a little poke around another couple of pottery works without fruit, we headed over to Tams and only had an hour's parking paid for due to the lack of pound coins so we had to jog round this one... Zero still wasn't tempted to go hand held shooting (it's the future)

Quite a small pottery works in comparison to some of the larger sites in Stoke and surroundings. It had been bashed around a bit, especially in the offices above and around the kiln floor. I don't think I've seen such an enormity of left over paper work... quite astounding as it was strewn asunder throughout the entire upper floors of the buildings.

A lot of unused fired pottery (mostly mugs and teapots) remained, as did their moulds which were interesting to examine.

Some history of the company and Crown Works.
