£1.225 million to keep the potteries producing pottery!


Middleport Pottery

EU funding of £1.225 million supported the restoration of this Victorian factory in 2012, helping to preserve the onsite production of Burleigh pottery and save 50 jobs. Awarded the prestigious EU Prize for Cultural Heritage, this project also generated a further 70 jobs thanks to the creation of new workshops and the opening of a new visitor centre.
