Stoke-on-Trent Roots

Stoke-on-Trent has been shaped by the pottery industry for over 300 years and is affectionately known the world over as 'The Potteries'.

From the mid seventeenth century with the abudance of coal and clay in the area the pottery industry started to devlope and grow in the area.

With master potters Wedgwood and Spode and there revolutionary ideas the industry flourished and the the future of the six towns and Stoke-On-Trent with it.

Josiah Wedgwood commissioned James brindley to create the Trent and Mersey canal to feed the industrial revalution, Staffordshire became center of the action with more miles of canals than any other county in England.

This solved the problem of getting clay from cornwall to the potteries and more importantly finished products could be moved directly to the merseyside ports.

The industry has remained in the area thanks to the skills of the local people and today, ceramics is a modern industry and Stoke-on-Trent is still famous for its quality ware which is sold all over the world. Wedgwood, Emma Bridgewater, Portmeirion, Royal Doulton, Churchill and Steelite are just a few of the leading brands you will find in the city. With an unrivalled heritage and very bright future, Stoke-on-Trent is officially recognised as the World Capital of Ceramics.
