Pottery Trips

    

   

I have been many times to the “Potteries” in Stoke-on-Trent, especially when I was researching into the history of Shelley Potteries. I am very passionate about the area, and it grieves me to see the decline, ever since the larger companies decided to farm the work out to China and other places.

I always enjoy visiting the “Potteries” and touring factories whenever possible. We have been on several trips with Eric Knowles and enjoy his company very much.

The last time we were up north was the 25th Anniversary Of The Shelley Group collectors club, when they put on a superb exhibition in the Gladstone Pottery Museum. On that occasion Paul Atterbury was present whom I had not seen for about 26 years or more.
