Staffordshire Pottery

The Staffordshire Pottery District

The City of Stoke-on-Trent comprises the old Staffordshire Pottery towns of Tunstall, Burslem, Hanley, Stoke-upon-Trent, Fenton, and Longton. In 1910, these six old pottery towns were federated under the name "Stoke-on-Trent." More than 300 potteries were still in operation in Stoke-on-Trent in the mid twentieth century.

Brief summaries of the development of the pottery industries in the Staffordshire District in Stoke-on-Trent and the in the Liverpool area will be provided in a short while.

Brief histories of Enoch Wood & Sons, Ralph Stevenson, and the Wedgwood pottery, three of the pottery companies mentioned on this site, will be provided in a short while.
