    I did a quick search for this place but nothing immediately popped up, if it's already been done feel free to delete.

    Wade were famous for their series of Whimsies, now moved to newer premises so the old factory is derelict.

    Could be worth a nose for the Stoke people. (photos from 'Southern Driver' on Flickr)

    Didn't even know Wades were based in Stoke, let alone had a derelict place there. Can't wait to see inside.

    It's not too bad, building is fairly smashed up but there's quite a bit of pottery lying around. Didn't manage to cover the offices this time so return visit needed.

    I'll post a few photos up here later on, not worth doing a report yet.

    Could never get inside a few years ago, they seemed to be looking after it more so than the others...

    Give it a go next time your near, things change!

    As mentioned above, here's a few photos from inside:

    Didn't have time to look around any of the older part of the factory, they are mainly from the back newer part.

    Will have to head back over again soon :)
