Etruria Industrial Museum Facing Axe

The Etruria Industrial Museum in Stoke-on-Trent is facing the axe due to government cuts. An online petition has been set up to try to save the museum.

Etruria Industrial Museum is the last steam-powered potters’ mill in Britain and it includes Jesse Shirley’s Bone and Flint Mill, scheduled as an ancient monument in 1975.

The mill is ‘in steam’ seven times a year when the 1903 boiler is fired and historic machinery can be seen working and you can also enjoy a number of interactive features and drop-in craft activities during your visit.
