“Moorcroft Collector Club Day”
Reviewed 18 March 2013

Visited the Moorcroft Heritage Visitor Centre today (16th March 2013) and was more than impressed with the professional presentation and organization of the day. Anyone that is considering visiting the Centre should not think twice. The Centre has everything there is to offer in showing visitors how Moorcroft pottery is made from design, making the clay(slip) and to the final stage of firing (glazed finish).
Well worth a visit.

“a reminder of times past”
Reviewed 22 February 2013

Excellent industrial-era, small scale buildings which still produce some fine works. Plenty of ceramics from yesteryear + today to see for locals, passers-by + tourists alike although a little bit 'out of the way' if you don't know Stoke-on-Trent so it could involve a taxi if not driving ?

“moorcroft factory tour”
Reviewed 29 January 2013

After may attempts at trying to get 2 places on the Moorcroft factory tour we finally succeeded. Boy was it worth the wait. We enjoyed it so much. Corrie ( apologies if I have spelt the name incorrectly) was so friendly, engaging and knowledgable. It was fanatastic to speak to the potters and painters themselves.

The factory shop was a huge bonus and tempted us into buying a piece.

The only down side was that there was no cafe on the premises so if requiring lunch either plan in advance, take sandwiches to eat before or visit the local diner which we did.

Thanks again for a lovely and fascinating tour.

“Pottery for everyone”
Reviewed 18 January 2013

Interesting place, with lots of information about pottery making, both past and present. Shop to buy misfits. Ideal for a rainy day
