The Potteries

The Potteries is the name for the area between Stoke-On-Trent, Newcastle-Under-Lyme and Kidsgrove. Everywhere along the canal are big chimneys where the potterie was burnt.
I went by the Burleigh Pottery, one of the last potteries still producing.

The nice guard I talked to explained the process of production and told me that The Princes´s Regeneration Trust spends money for the restoration of the whole area of the factory. This restoration includes the houses of the craftsmen who worked in the factory in former times.
