Burleigh in Stoke on Trent

Behind the scenes at the renowned Middleport Pottery, the last working Victorian pottery in England and Burleigh's home since 1889.

Everything is still made by hand and it was amazing to see the sheer scale of their daily output. It was great to meet their staff, many of them are second or third generation potters and the whole place had a timeless quality to it. Burleigh is still a large employer, but a tiny fraction of the 70,000 who used to work for the numerous potteries back in the 1950s.
