Factory Tour at Middleport Pottery (Home of Burleigh)
Factory Tour, next open Wed 1 Feb 2017 - Sat 1 Feb 2020, £7-£8.50
The Middleport Factory Tour is unique. It offers the chance to see pottery being made using the same handcraft methods as in the 1880s. The tour will lead you through each stage of production in sequence, showing how a lump of clay is transformed into a finished piece of pottery. You will also see the steam engine which once powered the whole factory.
Please note - The tour is of a working factory, which can be quite noisy in places and there are some trip hazards.
Group size - Usually our tours are limited to 10 per group, however if you have a larger group please contact Middleport Pottery to arrange your visit - 01782 499766.
Mobility & Access - There are four sizeable staircases and several smaller steps, some of which are narrow and steep. There is no seating on the way round. Access to some areas of the factory tours for those with mobility needs is possible with alternative tours available. Please contact us in advance to discuss.
