Details

The Heritage Visitor Centre offers a Grade II Listed Bottle Oven, a Museum which houses fascinating pieces of Moorcroft and the opportunity to book a guided Moorcroft Factory Tour. The guided factory tour is an essential element of your visit to Moorcroft. The unique hand made process remains almost the same today as it has done for over 100 years. Made by hand for collectors around the world each piece created results in designs made up of rich deep colours, which some say have the qualities of precious stones. Bottle oven restoration work is currently in progress - the visitor centre is open as usual.
