visit_eim_inline_01Etruria Industrial Museum is the last steam-powered potters’ mill in Britain. The mill is ‘in steam’ several times a year when the 1903 boiler is fired and historic machinery can be seen working. Situated in a pleasant location at the junction of the Trent & Mersey, and Caldon Canals the museum is also a perfect stop-off for walkers, cyclists and boaters.

Although the museum currently operates as part of Stoke-on-Trent City Council’s Museum Service, a group of enthusiastic supporters and volunteers maintain, develop and operate the Etruria Industrial Museum for the benefit of the public. For more information and to see details of all events, go to
