Wades Pottery, Stoke on Derp

This is kind of becoming a tourist destination at the moment so seized the opportunity to visit whilst its still do-able :cool

I had text BAJ asking if he was up to much and a few hours later we decided Wades LTD would be a plan. Onto the bus i got to meet BAJ in Newcastle and then off to Burslem in his van :eek: ;)

History (Sorry stolen from BAJ's report :D)
The Hill Works, built in 1814 by John and Richard Riley, replicating the corner plan and arched coach entrance of Enoch Wood’s Fountain Place Works, and displaying the customary Venetian façade.

Considering to be "one of the best pottery offices and warehouses" remaining in the city. Wade Heath and Co. and then Wades Ltd. occupied the building from 1954 to 2010 when they moved to new works at the Festival Site, Etruria.
